After doing a search here, I didn't find an answer to my question. I have Shimano BR-M415 mechanical disc brakes and they squeal like crazy only when they are wet. And when I say squeal, I mean it would be like having non toed in brake pads on V brakes.
Since this is my winter commuting bike, the disks are wet all the time. Now that is is spring and the rain has begun, the noise continues. When it is dry out the brakes work perfect and are silent.
Most of what I read here is clean your disk and pads, but I don't think that is the issue when they are wet but maybe I am wrong. If I go through a puddle and they get wet they squeal. Once the water is off the disk from use, they are great but it is the days that is constantly pours and they never have time to dry off. Any solutions? Is this something I am going to have to live with?
