Ok, I know this has come up before, but I'd appreciate any advice you may have. Our front brakes squeal like there is no tomorrow.
Here is our setup:
- 2005 Co-Motion Speedster with standard Co-Motion CroMo fork.
- Avid Single Digit 7 V-Brake with travel agent
- Yokozuna salmon colored brake pads
- Velocity Dyad rim
The pads are properly toed in, I cleaned the rim with an alcohol solution, but the pads have been squealing from the moment I installed them. The previous pads (Wrangler II) never squealed and are still on the rear rims. When I brake using only the rear brake, no squealing is noticable
The only thing I can think of is the age of the pads. When I bought them, the store found them in the bottom of a box, and may have had them for a while. Do these pads deteriorate with age?
Again, any advice is appreciated.
