    Brake Rub

    Maybe this is better in the brake forum, but I will start here. I just put together a top fuel 110 with xt disc brakes. For some reason when I adjust the rear brakes so that they dont rub, as soon as I sit on the bike they rub. So if I adjust them when I am sitting on the bike, they are fine except that they rub really bad when I am off the bike.
    Any thoughts? Hydro`s are new to me I never had this problem with my bb-7`s.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like a bit of flex going on....but let's be sure first.

    The brake forum has a great FAQ for centering the calipers and truing rotors. I'd say start there and make sure everything is running A1 hunky-dory first. If they still rub, I'd say set them up for when you're on the bike.
