Getting brake drag after tire install - mid 5,000km trip
Hey guys I'm looking for advice.
I had new tires installed on Friday (in the pouring rain) and did not immediately noticed a slight squealing from the front end. Turns out I have a bit of brake drag on the left side of the bike which is determined by the sound and the fact the rotor is hot to the touch every time I stop.
I was guessing that this might have been due to over torqued axle nut so I backed it off a bit but I am still getting the same noise. I visually inspected the caliper and it appear assembled correctly. Any other suggestions?
I am already 150km from the shop that did the work and they aren't open today anyways. Help is appreciated!
ps. the sound comes on over 70km/h and goes away as I slow below 50km/h
