Title: Screechy brakes
Post by: Steve Lord on March 03, 2006, 12:05:13 PM
Just got my Thorn Raven with XTR brakes on ceramic rims. Front brake is great but the back brake is loud enough to wake the dead. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of adding an arch to stiffen it up, or changing pads. Any ideas most welcome,
thanks.

Mea Culpa, I didn't know you could toe in those brakes! What an idiot  I am! THe last set I had, you couldn't do much with them, but that's no excuse, I'm just an idiot.

Anyway, now they are toed-in and thoroughly sorted, as they say, and are awesome brakes!
Soz, a bit of a time-waster, this one.
