- Disc brake rub under pedaling load. Aarggh!
I've just built up a Kona Kula Supreme frame with 2008 Reba Team's.
Whenever I pedal hard I get rub sound from both the front and back rotors against the pads, but not when I'm riding straight.
I'm running XT centrelock disc brakes with a 180mm XTR rotor upfront and a 160mm XT rotor at the back with the appropriate mount adaptors.
Could this be fork flex or bad brake setup or just a symptom of being 12.5 stone lanky git on a XC hardtail?
Your thoughts would be appreciated.Posted 8 years ago
Ok. It's late but if anyone is interested… I've just checked the brakes and the calipers were very very close (1mm) to the rotors which were showing signs of chaffing.
I've jiggled em about abit which hopefully has improved matters.
As I've had one too many glasses of Merlot Del Veneto to check whether it's improved things, it will have to wait until the morning.
