agggh! since changing rear pads there has been a very annoying constant squeak when riding, but bizarrely only when i sit down, if is stand up or lean to the right it stops WTF?? well i thought it must be a pad problem as re aligning the caliper had now effect so i change the pads for another new pair i had, test ride still did it! i checked the rotor-still very straight, check the frame for cracks-couldn't see anything, so after riding with the squeak and racking my brains for an answer i just put an old caliper and brake lever on, result? no squeak! but the mystery continues...
