I just got my bike for the first ride of year. I have a 2009 Giant Yukon FX. It's got a horrible squealing sound coming from the back. I think it's the back brake since it goes away when I squeeze the brake lever a little. I took off the back wheel and wiped the brake pads off to see if the pads may have dust on them. It worked for a while but the squeal came back. I am thinking I may need to try something else. Any ideas?

Sounds like you've got some pad rub going on there. Have you tried backing them off a bit and seeing if the problem persists?
