Disc Brake Noise
Posted By: Ian Broadhead
Date: 21 August 2008
We have an Avid BB7 disc on the back of the Landescape with a 203mm rotor.It usually runs pretty quietly but during todays run it was particularly noisy ( not especially loud but constant as the rotor ran between the pads ).It eventually got on The Stokers nerves.
If I applied the brake for a few seconds it subsequently went away.I also backed the pads off a notch and it went away but in both instances it eventually returned.With this in mind I imagine it concerns the pads which are the originals and the bike has done about 600-700 miles.The rotor has not been contaminated to my knowledge.
Would it benefit from a change of pads and if so what sort,the original Avids or something else.
Or is there perhaps another remedy ?
