okay well to anwser a few of the question....
a) did you ride in a puddle or get the wheel wet?
b) when you came home, did the front break smell funny at all?
c) does it make the noise for the entire rotation of the wheel?
d) are the rims clean?
e) during the last 5min of riding, did you feel anything abnormal in the breaking?
b. not really (but today on the drive home from my gf's it smelled like somethign was burning up, i nearly pulled over. Also I noticed when I break from 60 or so there is some vibration.
d.yes very clean
E. no it didnt feel akward during the last five minutes, but today when I was paying closer attention the bike doesnt coast or engine break normally. It feels like there is drag...:(
Have you done anything to the bike in the 100 miles you've had it? New levers by chance?
No, new levers or other mods that might affect this.
check for excessive disc brake drag by feeling with finger for excessive heat.
After 20 mins normal riding pull over and check how warm your fronts are.
w correct drag they should NOT burn your finger.....but may be slightly warm=
I drove home this morning, almost pulled over for a burning smell that started about 15 min in...lasted about 2 or 3 minutes. I checked the rotors when I got home, it was about a 25 min drive, they werent scolding hot, but definitely not just warm...just not enough to burn me.
What do you guys think? Normal? Or should I get it to a shop as soon as I can?
