Getting rid of brake squeal in Xootr Swift
I recently bought a Xootr Swift and I really liked the bike except for the front V-brake squeal which was driving me crazy. I tried the usual toe in of the brake pads, changed to dual compound Koolstop pads, steel wooled the rims, etc. to no avail... I read in one of the posts that sometimes toeing the pads out will cure the problem. Guess what, I did just that and also angled the pads down a bit and the squeal is gone... silent now. Hope this helps. This is a great forum and I have obtained tons of info by reading the posts.
