    Adjusting rubbing Juicy's - Help

    Just got a new bike with Juicy 7's. First set of disc breaks believe it or not. The rear won't stop rubbing. They are new...wheel is true...rotor is 203mm....new pads. How do I adjust out the rub. Is it just a wheel adjustment with the QR?
    Can't find any help on the Avid site.

    Thanks

    i would make sure the wheel is in the dropouts straight, if the noise continues bring it back to the shop where you bought it and have them adjust it. shouldnt take long.

    Caliper needs to be centered.

    From the Park Tools Website: http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=142
    Check that any mounting brackets are secure to the frame or fork mounts. AvidŽ recommended torque for bracket bolts is 70-80 inch pounds. Loosen the caliper body mounting bolts until body can move freely. Check the caliper is able to move laterally and center over the rotor when adjustment is loose (Figure 4).

    Squeeze the lever firmly several times and hold. This should position the caliper pads parallel to the rotor. First snug one and then another caliper body bolt. Next fully secure caliper mounting bolts fully to 40-60 inch pounds.
