BB7 Road

Postby ElliottDavo » Sun Feb 10, 2013 16:23 pm

BB7's making a loud squealing noise when used in wet conditions. Is this normal? The stock pads were lightly contaminated but managed to sand most of it off (I hope). Brakes are fairly close to the rotor so I dont think that will be a problem

The brakes are used with Sram Apex drop levers and Tektro top mounted brake levers

Saw a firm that did Kevlar pads, they might be worth a try

They do take a few rides to bed in IME. Fitted three sets to different bikes and oddly, it was the brand new rotor fitted to a new wheel yesterday that started squealing
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
