    Brake Rub and odd wear

    Hi,

    I have a 2009 Kona Five-O. I've been having issues with my front brake ever since i got it. I have trouble fitting the rotor in betweent he brake pads when i put the wheel on. and when i do get it in there. I see a gap on one side of the rotor and not the other.

    Also i was looking on on the inside of the rotor, and i see a lot more wear on the inside edge than the outside. Is there a way to fix the one pad that causing the rub and wear on the rotor?

    What brakes are they?

    It sounds like a set up issue.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    Read the posting guidelines. Do not bump your own threads.

    Read the manual.

    Reset the pistons, center the caliper.
