    Hayes Hydraulics on my monocog

    Well I swaped out the stock V brakes for a set of Hayes Hydraulics that I had on my Specialized Enduro Pro last night. The stock brakes were ok but nothing like the Hayes. And since drinking the coolaid this season I have not taken the full susp out at all and don't plan on it. I'm a very bad mechanic, however, the installation on the front was no problem. The rear gave me some difficulty and there is still a little drag. The true test will be tonight when I take it out on the trails. I'm praying for nothing catastrophic.

    Keep the rubber side down.

    There I corrected the spelling! Although it was entertaining trying to figure out what you guys were talking about.

    As long as the rotor is straight, loosen the bolts for the caliper, squeeze and hold the brake lever, tighten the bolts slowly, a little at a time, first one than the other, until the bolts are torqued properly, and that "should" center the caliper. Seems to work 7 out of 10 times first try. Good luck.

    it could also be the wheel that's not centered.

    I did the exact same thing on my Flight 29; took the Hayes FX9 Carbons off my Ellswoth that I didn't ride anymore. They work fine. If you did not put in in new pads, remove the pads and make sure the pistons are retracted all the way (may take a few tries) and re-center the calipers.
    Nobody will hurt you more than yourself
