This one baffles me. I have Hayes MX4, that came stock on my Giant STP. It's just the rear.
From what I can tell, you can adjust the distance of the pads to the rotor on both sides (both pads) independantly of each other. The non-cable side gets adjusted with a 5mm allen bolt/wrench, twist the wrench/bolt and the pad gets closer to the rotor.
the other pad gets adjusted by pulling the cable through the pinch bolt.
I can adjust the pads so they don't rub and my brakes work great. the rotor is warped just a tad, who's isn't..
The trouble comes after I ride for a bit. I've been jumping some smallish jumps and after an hour or so my cable side pad rubs non-stop and the squeek sounds like a dying mouse.
Could my rear wheel be moving in the dropouts ever so slightly? Any other thoughts/suggestions?
