That's a great idea! Every other bike I've owned had an easily adjustable splined lever. Your idea is golden. You should get a prize or something. Haven't even looked at that contact point sense I've seen this post, but I wonder if a drill & tap with a small locking bolt, for easy adjustment is possible?

Great idea SingleTrack.
