    which is a hope mono m4 200mm. The problem being is rubbing, not just casual drag but 'making it hard to padal' rubbing. It's a constant rubbing so I'm pretty sure the disk is not bent. I've tried using spacers but the disk is perfectly central to the calliper, not however to the pads. Is there anyway I can adjust the pads? They would appear to be equal distance from the calliper so I don't think it's a sticky pistong or anything. I've tried gently pushing the pads back a bit but as soon as I apply the lever a few time they reset themselves into their original position. My rear hope mono m4 is not rubbing at all. The whole bike is brand new by the way (in case that makes a difference). Any sugestions?
    Thanks, Nick.
