This weekend I was on a ride and grabbed my rear brake only to just keep moving. I have Hayes So1e brakes (i know they are bad but they came on the bike and have worked thus far) whcih are my first entry into the disc brake world. Something similar has happened in the past and I tightened something in the caliper that seemed to alleviate it. When I tried it this time, I had tightened it as much as I could and it seemed to help it for awhile but I feel like it will get worse again.
When I pull on the lever it looks like the pad is not engaging the rotor and its more like the rotor is being pushed towards the hub. Do I need new pads? need to adjust something? I am completely in the dark.
checked the brake forum but didnt see anything related to this issue
