    Is your rotor true?

    A few things could cause rubbing that occurs with the bike weighted or not.

    This is in order of most likelyness.

    1. Rotor is bent
    2. Caliper is not aligned
    3. Wheel not all the way in dropouts or in crooked.
    4. Brake lever has been squeezed w/ wheel out
    5. Brake rotor loose
    6. Hub loose

    If the rubbing only occurs when riding it is something due to flex in the frame/wheel. Make sure your QRs are tight! Adjust the brakes with the QRs tight (especailly on the front), if you adjust the brakes with it loose then tighten it up it wont be the same. Check the hub for play. Check suspension bearing/bushings for play.
