Brake chatter on Felt F1X--how to solve?
I have a 2007 F1X cyclocross bike, aluminum frame, carbon fork. Canti brakes. Just had the fork replaced due to the recall; I think the replacement is a Ritchey Carbon Comp, but not sure.
The front brakes have significant chatter when even moderate pressure is applied. It was worse with the recalled fork, but still a problem with the new one. The LBS mechanic says he has done what he could. This model apparently will not work with any other brake type without major changes, so not likely to do that.
Any ideas as to what causes the chatter and how to reduce/eliminate it? Is it common to this model or fork? Appreciate the help!
