QR's is the root cause of noise due to marginal misalignment, right? I read that thru-axle remedy the noise issues.
My set-up is thru-axle
Noisy even in dry condition?
I also run discs with thru-axles and they are indeed noisy in wet conditions. Same story on my CX bike with QRs and mechanical disc brakes.
Misalignment does not cause the squealing. My understanding is that it is caused by the ratio of static and dynamic friction coefficients of brake pads and disc surfaces.
Sintered metal pads are the worst in this respect. Btw. it's the same issue with cars. I had sintered metal pads on my previous sports car and they were squealing like crays when cold.
Agree, and it occurs in wet conditions. I'll put up with it when it comes to winter riding. Plan to do some off-road riding this weekend however. It's nice for a change of pace.
