    Chattering Elixir 5

    So all of a sudden my front brakes are chattering and are making what I can best describe as a grinding feel/noise. When I hold the front brake and compress the fork or "work" the wheel back and forth a bit it almost feels as if the pads are moving in the caliper. The wheel will rotate slightly in both directions with the brakes applied. Any thoughts?

    I have the same problem with my tektro disk. I sanded down my pads thinking it would be contaminated but that didn't solve it.

    P.s. I only get chatter when I get the pads up to temperature when they are cold they don't chatter do yours Pdlpwr?

    Did you check if any of the bolts are loose? (caliper and adapter)
