Hi all

Wow long shot but here goes !

I have a 'slight' problem with my GT Avalanche Expert brought in Nov 07. I have done about 900 miles and also noticed a sound (sort of squeaking noise ) when travelling at + 18 mph coming low down from the bike even there if freewheeling

Cannot replicate it on a bike stand so having a real real problem finding it

Any ideas or shall I just staying below 18 mph :)

Many thanks for you time

    discs rubbing? get for play in the wheel bearings.

    thanks..........when discs rub is it something that can only be obvious at speed.

    Also how do you adjust disc brakes in such cases. Is it a case of simply loosing the caliper and moving so the rota is evenly between the pads and re tigthening ???

    Sorry if it sounds a stupid question :?

    Thanks again
