Hi there. This is my first post! I have a Strida 3.2, which is about 6 months old and gets daily use. The front brake in particular has started to make an awful screech whan coming to rest. So if I pull up at traffic lights there is this loud ‘eeeeeeeek’ noise.
I have tried ‘roughening’ the brake shoes which worked for a few days, but the noise comes back. The brake drums look highly polished, and the shoes slightly shiny. I am concluding that the drums are too hard and the shoes not abrasive enough.
Anyone got any thoughts or experience of this?
(I know buying a 5 would sort it!)
