I have a 2011 Giant XTC 29er 1. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed these frames really lack the harmonic dampening properties for a quiet rear brake? I know there are various reasons for brake noise and even different types of noise. Mine is best described as a Turkey call and is the worst when out of the saddle with approximately equal F and R weight distribution. It seems when the chainstays and the seatstays are bearing less weight they are the loudest. I have done some research on here and it seems like a lot of guys have thrown new rotors and pads and all new brake systems at these frames only for the noise to just, temporarily, go away.

Please tell me I am wrong as I would like to put some mod-money into mine but if it is always going to make brake noise I will reconsider. Thanks in advance for thoughts and opinions.
