    Brakes squeeling

    I have hydrolic disc brakes on my 29r. I have not ridden it in a couple years and when I did it had very little use. I want to finally ride this bike (I should have before!) and when slowing down the brakes are very loud. What should I do? Is it just a little dust that will work itself out? Thanks!

    Ride it.

    QRs tight?

    search squealing brakes and you will find out that there is a whole lotta goings ons.

    Not wheel specific.

    I'd check to make sure there's pad left first. If the pad has worn away it could be the metal backing of the pad on your metal rotor. That'd be bad, m'kay.

    If you have plenty of brake pad left, then it should get quieter the more you use it.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Just take rubbing alcohol to the rotor.Works like a charm.

    Some oil on the rotors should stop the squeal*
