February 5th – I have absolutely no idea at all what’s happened here at all.
It started at the weekend – a rubbing on the front disc brake on my current bike of choice. A light rub, no more that a tickle.
As the days progressed it got worse, and defied my attempts to adjust it away.
In exasperation, I removed the brake pads, which were OK at about 60% remaining.
The leaf spring that keeps them off the disc however, was broken. This was allowing on pad to rub.
An easy, 30 second replacement. But I’ve never had a spring fail like that that hasn’t been worn on the disc as the pad ran down.
This is most peculiar. I shall keep my eye on things in case it’s something significant.
