I have Shimano Deore M596 brake on the front and I just changed the pads out and have a strange problem where the brakes barely work and squeal very loudly the first ride every day when going into work.
My ride in is all either flat or uphill but there are stop signs every 300 or 500 ft for a diistance of about 5 miles. Going home, the first thing I encounter is the downhill and the brakes will start to work as I descend the hill. It's about 400 elevation loss over about 3/4 miles with stop sign every 500 ft. The brakes will work fine the rest of the day after this.
The next morning, the same thing happens where the brake squeals and have no bite. The bike is stored in my garage (no insulation and has vents to the outside).
I am using the resin AO1S pads. The M596 brake is an upgrade and the rotor is the original one that came with my Hayes MX4 brake.
