    New question here. Problem with Hayes HFX Comp Disc Brakes

    Has anybody had any problems align the Hayes HFX Comp Disc Brakes, for some reason my rear caliper would not align properly, I'm not even sure why it did it, I even tried to move it all the way to one side to try and get the pad to clear, but that didn't work, got my local bike mechanic to work on it, some how got it fixed. Anybody else ever have this problem?

    Are you sure that your caliper was not pushed out on one side. Did you try taking the pads out and pressing the caliper's sides back with a 8mm wrench (Hayse has this in the their manual). The brake system has a resevior that enables the brake to automatically adjust to the thickness of the brakepads. When you don't have the disk in between the caliper, and press the lever, the resevior will fill and adjust to not having the disk. This will sometimes result in either one or both sides of the caliper to be out of wack. All you need to do is take out the brake pads and press the caliper back on both sides with a 8mm (or similar) wrench.

    Hopefully this helped. I am not sure if this is what you asking.
