Hello everyone,
I've got a silly question... excuse me as I'm a girl...
I've got Avid Juicy 3.5 hydraulic brakes
When I ride my front rotor makes a quiet noise like scratch on my pads. It's not constant scratching but it seems the rotor touches pads at some point.
How can I adjust it?
Will appreciate your help

Easiest way to adjust avids... loosen off the two bolts that hold the caliper on to the mounting bracket, squeeze the brake lever, then tighten the bolts without letting go of the lever.

Release the lever and they should be aligned.

Similar to Filthy's, but if you pull the lever hard with one hand, then push and pull the rotor side to side near the calliper, it should move the pistons back in. I've had to use Filthy's method mine a few times before they settled properly. Never heard of 3.5s. Are they made for Specialized?
