First, its not really a problem because my brakes work fine and are quite powerful, but it is starting to get really annoying.
I have hayes hfx 9 hd brakes on my bike and whenever i ride it, they make metallic rattling sound. It is a loud sound and is loudest when i make fast and usually sharp turns.
I emailed hayes about it and the reply i got was that it was probably deflection and i was told how to fix that. I followed all the steps i was given and they almost completely stopped the rattling for about 2-3 weeks.
Now for some reason, 5-6 weeks later, my brakes make the same rattling sound again and it is a lot louder and getting very annoying.
My brakes are fairly new and i am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to why my brakes rattle like that and how to fix it?
I am hoping not to have to get new brakes to fix this nuisance because they are new and have plenty of power for me.
