Anyone ever have to readjust the caliper every time they remove and reinstall a wheel, like to fix a flat?
All I can think of is that the teeth at the ends of the caps of the hub dig into the aluminum of the frame differently. It's a recently built bike with new hubs, so I guess they're still digging into the aluminum. I re-set the caliper perfectly, which takes some care with these Avid Elixir CR brakes, and then the first flat I get leaves me with a dragging brake for the rest of the ride... front or back. (Aluminum drop-outs on both ends.)
I'm sick of it! Does it go away after awhile? As the drop-outs get more chewed up by the hub ends, will the problem go away? Or, should I use some kind of washer?
