    BB5 funny sound

    I have a hardrock sport disc that came with bb5 disc brakes. when I ride though it constantly sounds like my rotor is hitting the pads. I tried adjusting myself, then I had the LBS adjust. They said it will just make that noise. I hear it when the suspension travels or when I turn 1 direction. Is it the brakes, or is it the wheel? not being trued or spokes being tensioned. I've never heard it with disc brakes before and the rotor appears to be true. Any ideas? The sound is kind of like a "ping/ting"

    I had this on my bike, problem for me was fork flex. If I leaned to hard *Ping* Back off the pads, yeah your brake handles will come closer to the bars. And tighten your QR tighter. That helped it.

    Just to make sure, if the bike is on its back and you spin the wheel, no pings right?
