    New SRAM Eagle - Squeaking Brakes

    Anyone else get this, right out of the gate? Maybe bed-in time on the pads/rotor are needed? Did some fairly aggressive single track as an early ride on the new stuff and squeaking all the way down some techy descents.

    Thanks.

    which brakes are these? there are no eagle brakes... but probably bad bed-in if they were brand new and you didn't take care of properly bedding in!

    any chance you got them contaminated? pads and/or rotors? was it a wet ride?

    You're right, the SRAM "level ultimate" brakes.

    Everything was new. Gradual brake in, etc. Not a wet ride either.

    Thinking I'll clean the rotor with acetone and go through the bed-in procedure again.
