I recently took my font and rear wheels off to get new tires on my 2014. I noticed the brakes on the front rubbing slightly when I put it all back together. I don't recall this being the case before. I know when I used to change pads on my disk brakes on my mountain bike, I had to slightly align the caliper on the mounts so it wouldn't rub. What is the possible reason here? I made sure I did not squeeze the levers with the wheels off. It's ever so slight but definitely has my attention. Will it go away as the pads wear or do I need to address it?

As soon as you stop a few times, things will go back to normal....

If its really bothering you, loosen the axle pinch bolts on the right side fork lower. Pump for a few times. Spin wheel, and stop wheel with the brakes.

This will align it perfectly.

If you REALLY want to dive in, follow the instructions on this page.

THanks. The tire spins ok. I just hear it rubbing slightly. I am sure it is slowing it a bit, but will ride for a few hundred miles and see if it changes. Thanks.
