Posted: Thu May 24, 2018 11:54 am Post subject: Disc brake catching
I have a new bike with disc brakes. The front brake seems to be touching something once every revolution. However, when I touch the brake lever the catching stops. It is almost as though the brake pads have some slack or play in the caliper and they are touching the rotor. As soon as the slack is taken up by touching, not pulling, the brake lever the noise stops. Can anyone relate to this and explain how to remove the 'slack' on the pads and hopefully resolve the problem?
Incidently, when I get off the bike and spin the wheel the noise is not present - I only get the noise when riding the bike?!
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
