Save what sanity I have left with a brake issue
Cannot for the life of me figure this one out. MY google-fu turns up no useful information.
105 dual pivot calipers, during a drivetrain cleaning I lubed the pivot points with tri-flow. Was a bit, eh, heavy handed with the tri-flow.
Anyway, once I had everything buttoned up, squeezed the rear brake a few times, nice and silky smooth.
Bike sat for a week and was working on another bike and just to see if it the brake was a smooth as before, squeezed the lever and was getting a clicking noise with resistance in the lever. Hmm. The brake didn't feel as smooth at all.
Did some poking around and the noise is most likely coming from the caliper; it sounds like the spring is clicking. Before I go through with a caliper dissasembly, is it plausible that the spring is dislodged in it 2 contact point housings?
I checked the mounting bolt, all is tight, cable seems to be okay where it enters the rear housing.....
Google only turns up brake squeal and didn't have much luck with Sheldon's site or Park Tool. . . .
thanks in advance.
