Brake squealing noise
« on: October 25, 2011, 09:11:53 PM »
Squealing noise from front brakes when cold.

Noticed when wheeling out of parking (indoor of course).  Narrowed it down to front brakes as in pull front brakes partially, squealing stops.  Doesn't make noise once warmed up.

Any ideas and or suggestions?

Might be some dust in there.  You can take it apart and clean it or just use mild pressure from a garden hose or air compressor to blow it out.

Nothing to worry about. I had this for a few days this summer.......looked like brake pads were rubbing on a few tiny rust specks on the disc.....bike had been sitting in my garage for a week during a really humid week.  Noise disappeared after I used it a few times.
