    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Trouble With Hayes MX2

    My rear Hayes MX2 disc brake when pulled feels like the ABS in a car with a hard pulse and then it lets go and then grabs hard again. This is really annoying and messes me up on a ride any suggestions?

    Is your rotor true? Possible pad/rotor contamination?

    If it's hard to tell it's out of true that's probably not the issue. Any unusual marks or discoloration on the braking surface of the rotor?

    Did this happen after working normally? Anything unusual happen in between? Is this a new setup, or new pads or new rotors?

    Okay, how long has that been? Did you bed the pads in?

    Your caliper may be too close to the center it's biting the rotor spoke. If this is the case, space it out.
