I apologize for the repetition but I really want a solution to this problem
My bikes came with Hayes HMX-1 mechanical disc brakes. They started squeaking about a month after I bought the bike and I have tried just about everything to get the squeaking to stop but nothing has worked.
I have cleaned the rotor with alcohol. I have cleaned and sanded the pads. I have adjusted the brakes and nothing has worked.
Are these brakes so crappy that the problem will never stop? Will new pads fix the problem? Any suggestions are appreciated.
It is really annoying having squeaky brakes.
