Hey, I just got a new specialized disc 2008. I picked it up in May (around the 15th or so), and now we are nearing the end of June. My father just bought a shwin hybrid bike for him to ride around in the park with and I tried it out and I went flying!!! his pad brakes were wayyy more responsive than my disc brakes. I am trying to remember how responsive they were when I first bought the bike but sadly I cannot remember. I know i eventually have to get the bike readjusted b/c I know my cables will stretch out and all, do u think that time has come to get that done? I have to squeeze pretty hard to stop at stop signs when I'm only going around 10mph on a flat surface, and I def have to squeeze harder than I used to. My brakes also stopped making that buzzing noise when I used them (I think they had to break in). If anybody can help that would awesome, thanks!
