You're going to need to be a little more specific than that.

Are you sure its the brake? It could be the hub, or spokes clicking if they are too loose.

put your bike on a bike stand(or upside down) spin you tire. if it makes a noise now its probobly not spokes. now there are a few noises i could think of, that its making. one is a shing shing... every time the wheel goes around. it just a bent rotor second could be if its rubbing all the way around, which means that your brakes just need to be adjusted. another could be when it makes a sound almost like a bell when your just riding thats just the callipur vibrating from either you tires or just a rough road, path ect no big deal it happens. if its not one of thoes and it happens when riding like dirtbike said it could be spokes but i doubt that. since you got it from cyclelogic(?) theyre really good people there i dont think it could be that but you never know.

and when you hear a noise you need to explain it a bit better because it could be lots of things. gl with fixing it though
