    Raleigh m50dx

    My Raleigh M50 DX has the Hayes HMX-2 disc brakes. The wheels are turnable but each time they turn you can hear the brakes rubbing against something and they also keep Squeaking. Can anyone help me out. Thanks!

    P.S.

    Are the Shimano M475 Disc Brakes better then the Hayes HMX-2 disc brakes?

    i am sure the shimanos aren't any worse, but you should be able to adjust your hayes. If i remember correctly the inner pad has no adjustment. am i right? If this is so, you will need to look at the assembly and see which pad is rubbing, because likely it may just be one. If it is the inside pad (with no adjustment) you will need to unbolt the caliper and reposition it. If there is an adjustment knob, give it a few turns to back off the pad a bit. if it is the outside pad, you should be able to adjust this buy the cable, either at the lever or at the caliper. are they new? sometimes the pads just need to wear down a bit. also, your QR levers can have an effect on the centering of the wheel. take note of that. hope some of this helps...
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
