    Love My Reign 2

    Had it for 3 days, and have gone out everyday. This thing climbs like a mountain goat. Very stable. On the 2nd ride I've developed an annoying sqeak/screech sound coming from somewhere middle-back I can't pin point. No real determining factors as to when it sqeaks. Any idea?
    This bike is so much fun to ride.

    It's more than likely the love/hate Hayes Disc Brakes, they are quite one minute then start to squeal the next.

    Yep, I bought my Reign 2 this past Saturday and absolutely love it. But I have noticed that the brakes squeak when I make sharp turns on high grip surfaces. I think this will go away once the pads have a little more wear on them. Other than that, the bike is awesome.

    Upon closer inspection I noticed that the rear brake calipers were off center. After adjusting them, the bike is completely silent. You may want to check them on yours.
