Advise needed -
After installing new brake pads yesterday, noticed a lot of friction between the new pads and the discs.
It is really noticeable when trying to push the bike on a flat surface.
Any advise would be appreciated.
Could somebody please post a photo of their front brake caliper? This is how it looks now on my bike:
When you changed the pads did you clean the sides of the caliper pucks? Lots of crud there hangs up on the dust seal and can mess with retraction. I soft brush and some 99% isopropal alcohol will do a nice job. let dry before pushing them back. https://www.amazon.com/CRC-Isopropyl...1422108&sr=8-4
not as hard on the seals as brake cleaner.
