    Stroker Trails making noise

    I havent ridden my Reign since my Moab trip in Nov. Paramedic schools puts a dent in ridding. I added on the trails before the trip. I got them pretty sorted out after much adjusting. In moab a rode the Whole Enchilada and they worked great. I had to cahnge out a rotor that got bent. Rode onw last day with the new rotor. Now im back to the noise I had when I first started. Its a gurgling when I first start out with light braking that turns to squeaking later on.

    Could be sticky pads from hangin out to long waiting for you. Try removing the pads scrape them on the cement or sand paper in a figure 8 then re-install and ride.

    dont think it was from sitting too long. They made the same noise last time I rode in moab my last day. Il'l pull them out and sand them down and see what happens.

    It's worth a try.

    Also make sure they are set up properly, this video is awesome you're mostly interested in the last section though. The feeler gauges they use are .015" you can tinker here the thicker the feeler gauge the more throw in the lever before engagement.

    Did the ghetto firgure 8 grind on the side walk. Wiped the rotors with (auto) break cleaner. No more squeaky. I kinda think I will need to do this often. No worries. I took 5 mins.
