I think either the wheel and brakes got unaligned, or something is wrong with the hydraulics that it's keeping the pad pushed out
Dude, that happens to me ALL the time. It's very common very the rotor to rub on the pads.
and just today i was hittin' some jumps and my rig seemed fine but then this ****** ran into my bike, he was blazin down some road and took a blind turn right into the spokes on my front rim
. (Luckily they're not bent though
). Then when i got home i looked at the bike to see what was causing a clinking noise on the front rim and i found out the the rotor was out of true - a 3-4 inch patch - while the rim was not. Then to my dismay i noticed that 3 of the 6 screws holding the rear rotor on......were missing and another was loose. NOT GOOD!
so now before i ride the hell out of my bike in squamish, i have to have it serviced. At least it's under the warranty though,
, hehe? not really......................................................
