My wife and I both have Ellsworth Truths with Manitou Skareb forks. I just put the Juciy brakes on to replace Avid Machanicals. We rode for about thirty miles over two days and climed and descended 5000 feeet. Then on the last run on the second day a 600 feet drop over 1.5 miles amd they started to howl. The next day the slightest drop seemed to heat the brakes enough they would howl and and vibrate through the handlebars. We have the 160 diameter rotors. Will they larger rotors solve this? You really can't ride the bike when they start to how and vibrate back thorugh the frame this way.
I removed the pads on both bikes iwhile in the field on the third dayand scraped the pads down and them we went through the proces of reseating whle riding in the field. It looks like the pads wee glazed.It lasted about 15 minutes and right back to the howling. My Aivd mechanicals never had this type of issue. they were very resistant to howing afer a lone hard dwonhill. Not these new brakes. What can I do? Is it pads, rotors or rotor size? Thanks for the help. Alr
