Squeaky mechanical disc brakes
i have a hardrock pro disc. Recently I've been getting some loud sqeaking when i feather my rear brake. It doesnt make the noise if I apply the brake completely. Also. I've cleaned the rotor thoroughly with rubbing alcohol and it didnt seem to do anything. I tried tightening my brake cable down on the disc brake side as well and nothing. All the bolts seem tight down there as well. The bike has about ~150 miles on it, so I'm not sure if maybe i need a new brake pad? Im not much of a bike a tech so any helpful hints would be appreciated.
My mechanical disc brakes squeeled pretty badly (although it was all the time) until I spent a few minutes and got the alignment between the caliper/pads and disc as perfect as my eyesight allowed. They are silent now.
mine squeals like a bleeding rabbit when it gets wet. I like noise.
