Had a weird issue with my rear rotor, a squeal I couldn't eliminate. Adjusted brake, bled brake, changed out brake to a new one, kept coming back. It would be fine in the stand or at the beginning of the ride, but after a couple hard grabs and as they warmed up, I would get a shudder and loud noise that wouldn't go away even after I was no longer braking, I thought it was a sticky piston but a new brake performed exactly the same way. No problem with the front brake.

I fixed it by changing back to an Avid 160mm rotor, first silent ride I have had yet on this new frame. I was beginning to think it was frame flex!! Has anyone else experienced this? I was wondering if the rotor is just thicker?
