Rear Disk Alignment on a SS Frame
Can anybody recommend a method of aligning a rear disk on a single speed frame with a horizontal track style rear? There are 6 variable nuts that can't seem to get tightened properly in order to prevent brake rub. 2 for the hubs, and 4 disk brake mount nuts. See photo attached.
The method I have been using is to tighten nuts 5 and 6 while assuring good wheel alignment, then tighten nuts 3 and 4, while assuring good verticle alignment of the calliper, then finally tighten 1 and 2 for the horizontal alignment of the calliper with the levers squeezed. Still, the brakes rub.
Or, will I have to live with a certain amount of brake rub with a rear disk setup on a SS? Thanks in advance.
