Hopefully this question hasn't been asked a million times. The search option is disabled so I couldn't look it up.
I have a stock 04 Rockhopper with linear pull brakes. Right now I've got a pair of Kool Stop dual compound MTB Pads and I'm having a hard time getting my brakes to stay quiet. I know about alignment and toeing in etc. but I was wondering how others go about installing and aligning their brake pads. It just seems to take forever to get them adjusted correctly so nothing rubs on the tire, so that they are quiet and so that they feel good.
Any tips, suggestions or techniques that help with this will be greatly appreciated.
