I am having an issue with front brake squealing when I am slowing down from maybe around starting 40mph and up. Seems like the braking power was ok as I could slow myself down.

But the front brake doesn't squeal if the speed is around around maybe low 30mph (and slower)

I aligned the pads and cleaned the brake track (alloy, not carbon), looking for what else can I do to quiet the front brake. Thanks.

Toe-in? I'm about 200lbs and generally toe-in my brake pads 0.75mm. Works well for me.
