Hey everyone, this is my first post on the forum as I am new to mountain biking (so pardon my ignorance). I just got a new bike with Hayes Stroker Ryder hydraulic disc brakes, and they have been great for the first few miles (only have 30-40 miles on the bike). Last weekend at the end of a ride, the front brake would shudder/shimmy/pulse when stopping. I WOULD stop, but not smoothly and it about scared the crap out of me coming fast off a trail that crossed a main road! There is no squealing or screaching, just this low grinding, rough-pulsing you can feel and hear when stopping. I took the front wheel off and looked for debris buildup etc, but everything looked ok.
Now I know pretty much nothing about bikes/disc brakes, but I am learning and willing to learn. Any ideas of what this could be?
