    Front Disc Brake Squeal

    I have a Haro escape 8.3 with Hayes HFX-9 hydraulic disc brakes. I started to ride today and noticed that any time I grab the front brake strongly it makes a loud squealing sound. The rear brake sounds fine and when I ease on the front it doesn't make the sound. The front brake seems to be working just fine as far as stopping the bike. Anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Sometimes it can help to clean the rotors. You can try alcohol (the rubbing kind, not the drinking kind) for that. I usually use Clean Streak Metal Prep myself.
