I am new to disc brakes. Still learning. I ride up and down some very steep terrain and I have heard EVERY type of disc brake squealing from our prolonged steep decents.
I weigh 160 pounds. My ride has 160mm rotors front and rear.
I am assuming that the squeal is produced as they heat up. Mine do not squeal until I have been on them for a bit.
Would increasing rotor size eliminate the squeal?
Steep decents here on my local loop are 3 miles long.
Is 3 miles of consistant fairly hard braking just asking too much of disc brakes?
Is the squeal gonna happen in this situation no matter what???
