Okay, so heres my issue....
Have a IRD dual banger mech disk on front. Rotor is not bent, and pads are semi new (nery little wear.) For the life of me I cannot get it adjusted so its not rubbing. Its either too loose when its not rubbing, or rubs like crap when it works as I'd like it too. I like my front brake to be very touchy. Here is how I have adjusted them:
1. Loosen slack from cable, bottom out both barrel adjusters
2. Loosen mounting bolts
3. By hand, squeeze caliper tight, and tighten bolts, alternating between bolts 1/8 turn at a time till snug
4. Let go hand and remove slack from cable, making sure caliper arm doesn't move.
Still rubs. Wheel locks up like I want it to, but can still hear it rub. There are no tight spots when I spin the wheel, so I know the rotor is not bent, and the wheel is centered in the dropouts. (must add this is a QR wheel.) This is how the IRD manual and website says to adjust them. I have also tried the directions on the park site for adjusting Avid mech brakes, keeping in mind that when adjusting the pad adjusting knobs, that both pads move and the gap needs to be the same, not the inner gab larger. Same thing... I have also adjusted the way I would if the outer pad was fixed, as in avid brakes.
Any suggestions. I have been patient, as I know its a art to get these adjusted correctly. I am starting to think its how tight I like the brakes to be. But that shouldn't make a difference. Thanks in advance for any input.
