Noise From the Rear
Rear of the bike, that is. Seriously, I've been hearing this kind of shrieking sound like running a knife through an electric sharpener coming from the rear area. I hear it most at high speeds and it kind of comes and goes but is present a lot. It must be the brake, right?
Riding home yesterday on the freeway, even with a helmet of wind noise I hear the sound. Like sharpening steel. I got home and put bike on the center stand. The rear wheel spins okay, the caliper isn't frozen, but there is an unven amount of drag on the rotor during each revolution. and the rotor was very hot. The fronts were not hot at all. The rear rotor is not chewed up and the pads are quite worn but I do see some meat left on them.
Any ideas as to what is going on? Do worn original pads make this kind of noise? I can also mention the chain and both sprockets were recently replaced, but the sound was noticed even prior to that. Thanks in advance.
