    Have a look at this: http://tecnnis.be/man/EN_PILOT-XP.pdf

    I think most cranks are adjusted in the same way. Basically there's 2 screws that you need to adjust with an allan key. One is a locking screw that you loosen first, then adjust the other one. It moves the locking catch up/down to adjust the point at which the brake is released.

    may be the tension spring is old, compressed and not accurate, change the spring.
