    Campagnolo brake barrel adjuster? Which to turn?

    After having Shimano equipped bikes for years im just wondering which part I should be turning to adjust the brakes, is is the silver bit at the top or the round disk with like a rubber ring in the middle? Link to what it looks like below: if you turn the rubber disk thing it has like notches underneath it?

    Turn the rubber ring, just make sure it settles into the notch once you're done. The notch prevents the adjustment from walking.

    I don't want to come off like a dick, but if you couldn't figure out a barrel adjuster, maybe you should have someone else do your bicycle maintenance.
    Too old to ride plastic

    'brifter' is a lame word.
