Adjusting Brake Levers(2 posts)

Stupid question....trying to adjust the brake levers to move the hoods up (ie. adjust the levers so the hoods are further up the bar). I've been able to peel back the rubbers on the hoods to see the bolt, but not sure how to get the rubber far enough back to get access to the bolt. Do I just keep pushing the rubber back, or will I rip or tear them? Any suggestions???

Thanks

Brake lever hoods are pretty flexy. If you can see the bolt, then you should be able to get your allen wrench to it without peeling the hoods back any farther.
