- Disk brakes stick while at work
I’m sure this shows my ignorance of how brakes work but anyhoo…
My rear Formula RX brake locks while I’m at work during the day. Its fine when I get off the bike, but when I go to cycle home again the rear brake has locked solid.
It’s not with prior use, as this morning I didn’t use the rear brake on purpose, and the thing is now locked solid.
Presumably it’s a temperature issue potentially causing somethign or other to expand during the day? (and it is now quite hot)?
What do I do to go about fixing this? 😕Posted 7 years ago
How do I get it working again? Last time I put the bike in the back of a work van and drove home lol… If it’s locked on when I’m about to go to work I use a different bike..
I haven’t bled it, so I’m guessing that’s whats needed.
It’s an intermittent problem that I’ve only now thought about the heat – as I hadn’t used the brakes this morning and now they are on solid.
No free van and no bleed kit at work (or home for that matter) so I may be walking home 🙄Posted 7 years ago
