Just bought a 2008 Trance 1 on closeout and the Hayes Stroker Trail brakes are driving me crazy.
I took it back to the bike shop 3 times already and they can't seem to fix it. Here are the symptoms:
Doesn't happen right away, usually after about 15-20 min of riding usu when i've ridden through a puddle
Once the squeak starts it gets louder and louder and is pretty consistent but then the next day it is gone
It is LOUD! You can hear me from pretty far away.
Squeak goes away when i feather the rear brake lever
The rotor seems true by looking visually at it but i dont have a truing stand
Once it is squeaking it doesn't matter if i am pedaling or not
Does not matter if i am in the saddle or out of the saddle
the levers seem fine...as in they aren't mushy
I tried centering the brakes by doing the loosen bolts>squeeze lever> tighten bolt
I've tried centering them visually also by looking at the caliper from above
can anyone give any suggestions? it is driving me CRAZY!
