after ride...pads rubbing?
so after today's ride, I put my bike back in it's spot, I heard the rear disc squeal as I rooled the bike. I picked it up by the seat and spun the rear wheel. It was rubbing the pad.
Disc is straight, and it didn't rub before today's journey.
I had to back the pads off several clicks to stop the rub. what gives? What should I look for? All bolts are tight, and disc is straight.

just spitballing but is the rear wheel QR tight and where it usually is? if the wheel is loose or got jostled by a big bump etc the wheel and thus the rotor may be just slightly out of wack.

I had a similar issue today before my ride. I had removed the rear wheel last night for maintenance and
this was the issue. Messed around with the QR and viola problem solved. After todays ride I had the same issue the inner (wheel side) pad was rubbing and no matter what I did, adjust the cables and QR it still rubbed. This is my first bike with disc brakes and I'm finding them to be a hassle!
