The disc brakes on my bike have gone a little sloppy. I have figured out the how they work and have managed to adjust the pads thus getting the brakes to engage sooner.
My question is how much clearance should there be ? Is it doing damage to the disc or pads if they rub ? The wheel turns freely, however there is a little minor contact ( I can hear it when I lift the wheel and spin it but not when I ride it ) . Is it wise to leave adjustment it like this or should we back off the pads just a tiny bit more ?
I apologize if this seems like a dumb question ... but I'm relatively new to this new technology.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
