    Do you think? I noticed that the front rotor is rubbing on the left pad (as you are sitting on the bike). I think I just need to do some fine tuning with the QR.

    Also...it's been hella dry and dusty around these parts. Plus over the weekend I was riding at two ski resorts and one of those resorts had some small water crossings.

    which brakes

    which brakes are your running? I don't know about the pads - just though it would be a inexpensive way to try, plus it can't hurt.

    I take full responsibility. We need someone to be out there taking lots of epic riding shots, and I have failed miserably as of late. I've been prepping for the MS150 this weekend on my road bike and my Yeti has been very under appreciated lately.

    After this weekend I will do my part to help liven up the board. Please accept my sincere, temporary roadie apology....

    Yup...still the original pads. I really do think I just need to tweak around with the QR so that the rotor ain't rubbing on the pads.

    I took plenty of pix this past weekend when I was riding at two ski resorts. But no action shots cuz I still haven't figured out how to use my self timer. Maybe I'll figure it out this weekend or will just find some chode to take a pic of me.

    Ha Ha... See, people were complaining about my posting but look what it brought to this forum. Lets see, what else do I need to research to buy eventually.. way down the road...?

    Was it dull before I started asking questions? Possibly everyone just got used to the daily chatter I was creating...

    I'll create a thread right now.....
