Annoying brake squeal
You know it all .... the bike brakes squeal like hell, because everyone knows who is coming home so late ...
The brake pads should not be parallel to the rim, but slightly inclined. Meaning, the rear end (seen in the direction of travel) should be 1-2 mm away from the rim. You can easily adjust this by simply sticking a match to the back end with Tesa during assembly.
The trick is: When braking, the pad is pulled to the rim, put through the oblique, is initially only the front part (see Figure 2) and so a high-frequency oscillation is prevented.
Works great ... any professional driver and / or screwdriver will confirm.
