    Why does XT rotor squeal when leaning a Jet9RDO?

    When I am racing through a corner or putting my weight off center on the bike, I am getting rear rotor pad rub and a slight squeal. Is the frame flexing or the Chris King hubs and spokes flexing?

    Most likely candidate is either that the quick release isn't tight enough or you need to snug up your Chris King hub.

    King hubs are very easy to adjust you'll need a small allen key for the set screw, and then a 4&5mm allen key (or is it 5 &6 I never remember) to adjust.

    Great hubs great bike, enjoy.

    I tripled checked QR prior to putting bike on the car and then experiencing squeek. After reading the post above, I went and checked rear QR and sure enough, it had come loose! Thanks!
