I built a new bike in March and have 2013 XT brakes installed. They have been utterly flawless since installed.
A few days ago, however, I started to hear some faint squealing when lightly applying the rear brake.
Now, I came from Avid BB7s so I know brake squeal. My BB7s were loud enough to fell trees and squealed constantly. But the XT squeal is very different.
When lightly applied or heavily applied, there is no squeal. It's just at a certain mid-range pressure that they squeal. The squeal itself is faint and doesn't get louder.
Is there something simple to do to eliminate this? Since it's minor and there hasn't been a squeal up until now, I'm wondering if it's just pad wear or something that can be easily corrected.
