Picked up an '08 Shift R5 that came with Avid BB7s. I had ordered a Shimano XT 775 for a Diamondback that was stolen a couple days ago (thankfully hadnt installed it) and installed them on the new bike. Had to use the Avid rotor because the Shimano was a center lock. Compared to the BB7 caliper/rotor, the Shimano caliper/Avid rotor is very noisy. Brake performance seems good (considerably better than the BB7) but what can I do to alleviate the noise?
