    Bonking ... not feelin' well New XTR Disc brake centering problem

    It seems every time I take off my front wheel to put my bike on the rack, when I put it back on the brake rubs. I have to actually swap shims to bring it back to center. It'll then stay centered until the next time.... This is annoying, especially since you have to swap shims to center it!

    When you put the wheel back on and it rubs just hold the rotor against the pad it's rubbing and squeeze the brake lever a couple of times and it should re-center. You may actually over-do it and it'll rub the other side so you just hold it to that side and do it again - you'll get a feel for the right pressure after doing it a few times. This takes all off about 10 seconds to do.

    Sometimes you can just squeeze the lever a few times to get it to re-center.
