I took my bike in for a checkup because I hear a lot
of scraping when pushing my bike,
even while riding slow with my helmet on.
So I wanted to check and make sure everything was ok.

Well, the verdict was that it was ok.
That most bikes do make some noise.

Seems to be coming from back brake assembly I guess.

But I was told my back brakes look new,
and I know front ones are new.
So,,,,,,,,,,,,,ready to ride!

This Wednesday should be 75 degrees. :icon_thumbsup:

Disc brakes usually always make a little noise. You car will do the same but since you are inside you will never hear the noise.

If it bothers you try to blow them out with some compressed air. Brake dust can build up and ride on the disc... don't oil them tho.... :icon_twisted:


You can have it cheap.
You can have it fast.
You can have high quality.
PICK ANY 2....

Thanks,

After the ride yesterday, they were really noisy.

over the weekend this subject came up - one guy says he uses the garden hose on low with spray and claims it works for him.
