• I replaced the pads on my cross bike and the new pads are rubbing on the rotors all the time. I pushed back the pistons with a tyre lever but I still only get about 1 wheel rotation when I spin the wheel. I realigned the callipers which made a marginal improvement but not much. Is there anything else I should do or do I just need to ride them a bit to wear the new pads down?

    (Brakes are sram rival from a few years ago, pads are sram organic pads)

  • Spread the pistons more, I find SRAM don't like to retract but if you can manage to spread them and lightly squeeze the lever on and off a bit they usually go.
