Brake (not "break") Squeal
I've done the obligatory search and found some info, but nothing that specifically sounds like my issue. I have also posted this in the bicycle mechanics forum here.
Anyway, I just got these new Alex DV 15 wheels
for my fixed gear conversion. While taking it for a test ride last night, the brakes squealed something fierce! I also noticed a "feeling" when applying the brakes. It wasn't so much constant vibration, but more of like a "THUNK-THUNK-THUNK" would feel.
The brake pads came w/ the bike so I have no idea how old they are, but they stop me just fine. Also, before I got the new wheels, I used them on the old wheels and there was no squeal or vibration or anything.
Any thoughts? Could it be some sort of film or glazing or something on the new rims?
