Hi all,

My brakes are rubbing and I've tried all sorts of adjustments to stop them rubbing. Does anyone have any advice? Am I better off taking them off and setting them up again?

Many thanks

    is the wheel warped?

    if not, read the set up info on Parktools.

  • I'm fairly sure it's not warped. I'll try the parktools website.

  • is your wheel on straight? I've seen before where people have sworn their wheel was bowed when actually the QR or lug bolts are just not pulling the axel into the depths of the recesses far enough
