Hey guys. I have had my bike since about Feb. Not long ago the disc brakes really went soft while on a long ride. I still had full braking power as long as I pulled far enough. It was obvious that is was just the pads wearing down. I stopped by my bike shop to get a tune up before heading to the trail again. The shop was really busy so they just adjusted the brakes and I was going to take it in for a full tune up later. The next time I went riding the rear brake lever was very hard and they lacked stopping power, at times squealing. I have myself adjusted the cables and placement of the pads and still can't make much of a difference. My only theory is the pads are shot but this seems strange since they still worked well before the bike shop adjustment. I would just take it in for the free tune up but I'm living 200 miles from that shop for the next 3 months and the shops here want $55 for tune ups. So any other ideas rather than brake pads? I you have read this far I thank you and am sorry I wrote so much!
