<VV> Disk Brake Effort

Seth pointed me to an article that talks about some calipers being designed to pull the pistons back more.  They require a strange stepped master cylinder to supply the additional fluid needed.  I'm wondering if I have some of those calipers.

Interesting - I would expect the large rotor diameter to give great stopping with reasonable effort.
So you have it set up without any lost pedal motion, and it just takes a lot of travel at the master cylinder to get full effort?

- could something be pushing the pads back from the nominal rotor surface, requiring the extra fluid volume to apply?
