    I've Checked Every Bolt and Still Get an Odd...

    I have a Cannondale Rush w/Lefty and Juicy 7s. I have a race tomarrow and today was the first day I could ride the bike to make sure it was okay as it's rained the whole week.

    Anyway, under light/moderate braking at about 8mph, I get an odd feeeling as if my rotor bolts are loose, but they are as tight as possible. Everything else is tight. I'm using Hayes rotors. I don't mind it, just as long as I'll have stopping power.

    Any ideas what is going on? I'll be stopping by the REI after dinner to see if they can suggest something.

    -Thanks

    I've X-posted this in the brake forum, but thought for some reason it could be my Lefty...but there is no play in the shock or headset.

    Just a stab in the dark seeing how you
    have checked all of your bolts but
    maybe you have a worn out or loose brake pad ?
    Maybe a spring clip has come off of
    the pad ?

    False alarm. I survived the race and all, but I should replace the pads as the ones in there are from a 2004ish BB7.
    I know, I know....:-)
    Thanks!
