This is really great! So much information I had no clue about. I must admit to having never maintained my bikes before. I will definitely be referencing this again and again. Thank you for the invaluable links!
hi i have tektro draco brakes on giant revel 1..can any1 help me the front disc makes a slight grinding noise when it turns how do i fix this??...
It means one or both of the pads are dragging on the disk.
get it where you can look thru the disc brake
make sure the moveable pad has clearance when relaxed
make sure the adjustable pad has clearance
about the thickness of a credit card should do it
Quickie, I know this is an old thread.
I sprayed my bike with Inox (CRC type thing) BEFORE reading this excellent guide.
Back disc rotor cleaned up great with isopropyl, front still either makes noise or slides with an obvious "ticking".
Is there something I can do to clean the pads or should I chuck em and get some new ones?
