    I need a little advice.



    I was riding home yesterday and pulled to the light noticing my rear brake was tight and the bike would not roll freely. I loosened the wingnut and assumed it just was out of adjustment. A mile later and another light it was tight again. This continued all the way home every mile the brake needed to be loosened. About 4 miles.



    Its an 08, any ideas on what can cause this?

    check to make sure your brake lever is comming all the way up.. had that happen to me before after a fall.. also is your rear axle tight? you may have had something come apart inside the brake housing
