Ok, I've searched some other threads but haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.
I have a Fox Float 100RLC, Chris King Iso-Disc front hub, and Hayes HFX Mag+ brakes.
My front brake is properly bled and feels great, but I get rubbing every now and then. I can adjust my caliper so that it doesn't rub, but when I'm riding, it rubs a little bit and sometimes the rubbing goes away and comes back.
I know there is an issue regarding using a Fox fork and Chris King hub, but that doesn't seem to be the problem for me, since I am able to adjust the caliper initially so that it doesn't rub. Does this seem correct or should I consider having the disc tabs faced?
My other guess is that one of the pads is sticking, so that when I use the brakes, it doesn't return all the way and continues to rub on the mildly untrue rotors. If I decide to clean the pistons, I know that I have to take out the pads and squeeze the lever to expose the pistons in the caliper. How far can I squeeze the pistons out before I risk popping them out and making a mess with DOT fluid?
I hope you guys can help me out, because this problem is really frustrating me.
