My bicycle's mechanical disk brakes are failing! Answered
My rear disk brake is in a sad state. I squeeze the rear brake lever as hard as I can, yet, my stopping power is nil. I wiped down the rotor with rubbing alcohol, but to no avail.
It might also be relevant that I ride frequently in snow and slush, and also in dusty areas.
The bike is the Specialized ''Rockhopper," 2009 edition, with about 450-550 miles put on it.
What can I do to fix the brake so that I won't have to rely on the front brake?
