Question: I'd like to know if it's normal for brakes to rub or make noise on day-to-day use.
This was supposed to be a poll! (darn browser!)
1 - Yes
2 - Yes because I have other things to do.
3 - No
4 - No because it would send me to the looney-bin.

Under most riding conditions my disks touch the pads a little bit, unless I just reset them.
Probably because none of my rotors are perfectly true for more than a few weeks after I install them.
If the noise is audible when riding or I notice drag when I give the wheel a spin, then I make adjustments.
