    Quick release tension affects breaks..

    Hey guys,..

    I have a set of Deore M-555 Hydraulic discs, and have began to realize that this really pisses me off...

    It seems that quick release tension affects the relative positions of pad and rotor. Thus, if tension is off slightly from when the brakes were setup, you might get rubbing.

    It seems that the quick release slighly pulls in the fork legs, which is just enough to shift the caliper position ...

    However, I see tons of folks removing their wheels when driving to the trails, and clearly this is not an issue for them.

    Am I missing something?

    I think you might need to be more consistant with your quick release tension. If you can get it the same tightness every time you should be fine. I get the quick release tight enough to leave a small impression on my hand when it I'm done closing it. If the brake was originally adjusted at your regular tension you shouldnt have any problems afterwards.
