    FTM brake rub

    Has anyone experienced constant brakerub on the FTM Carbon? It's running the XX groupset with standard 140mm rear discs. Bled them, aligned them, adjusted them, but sometimes it just keeps on coming back!

    140 on an FTM?

    Switch back to 160 or a manly 185mm rotor.

    AND check the bolts that mount the 140 adapter to the frame. Either add washers or get shorter bolts. That is usually the culprit.

    Yes, the groupset came with a standard 140mm rear disc! Not very manly indeed! Will try swapping them for larger discs. Thanks, Bikerbob!
