HELP...rear brake <<CLUNKING>>!
<<CLUNK>>..that's the sound I was hearing whenever I applied my rear brake. I had my bike up on the stands yesterday and realised where the sound was coming from. The bracket that allows the rear brake caliper to slide foward and back during chain adjustments seems to have developed slop in it. When I apply the rear brake the entire caliper rotates foward about 1/16th of an inch. Has anyone else experienced this?
I just turned 6,000 miles on my bike and it seems kinda premature for this kind of wear. Any input you guys have on this is appreciated.
