my brakes rub too. I heard it when i FIRST bought the bike (it had .4 miles on it and they were rolling it out of the door)

he said it was normal (it wasn't squeay, you could just tell it was the front brakes) Now I have about 14,000 miles on the bike and it still does the same thing :) I'm about to get new brake pads, so i'll see if it does anything

well i took my calipers off today sprayed some brake cleaner all up in there. lots of dirt came out.. also lubed up the pads with some squeaky stuff.. worked like a charm.... i also learned that when the calipers are off and u press the brakes the pads close up and u cant get them apart by hand. had to wiggle them free with a flathead.
