    Avid Mech Discs on Older Chameleon (x post From SC Forum)

    I recently added Avid Mech to my chameleon and have been having troubles with the rear brake, I have tried everything including reinstalling the pads and every adjusment sugested by avid. My problem is that the brakes work fine for the first few miles and then I start getting intermitent singing, the rotors are true, the cable slides fine, and cyles fine. Anyone else run into this problem, any setup tricks that anyone has discovered. I even tried a rollamajig like dizzle did, but that just seems to get dusty and dirty real fast and wasnt as efficent as running strait cable. The whole thing is begging to piss me off so much that I am contemplating a new bike (and not a newer chameleon since I think the frame quality has gone down just my oppinion though)
    Thanks

    The QR can be not tight enough.
    Check for the pads spring to work fine and is properly installed.

    Other than that, nothing comes to my mind that could cause singing. Maybe some frame flex???
