I recently purchased a used 2011 Raleigh Talus 4.0.
My rear wheel/disc makes a squeaking or moaning type sound. My brake handle that goes to my rear brake is loose and it takes a lot of squeezing to engage the rear brake.
I had a friend tell me the noise is probably because I need new brake pads. Is this what's making the noise? Will any 72mm pads work for a replacement( Tektro Novela Mechanical Disc, 160mm Rotors). And will this fix the amount of movement it takes to engage the rear brake.
Any help is appreciated.
