rotor slides between pads while braking
i've got a set of avid bb5's. they are adjusted nearly perfectly and the pads are super new.
i must have ridden through an oil puddle or something because my pads don't stop the rotor, it just spins around at high speed while in contact with both pads. squeezing it really hard doesn't help.
this has happened to a different mtb of mine before, i decided to just ride and "burn it off" with braking friction but this has not worked with the bb5's
i bought an aresol can of automotive grade brake cleaner. it doesnt help.
what is a guy to do?
