Took the words right out of my mouth. I put new SBS pads in this weekend and just before I came to a stop, it would let out a bit of a howl (front only). I thought, great, I didn't have it with stock pads since they were new, now I've got the squeel back.
During the trail ride, and after a pressure wash, no noise. It may have been the disc quiet I applied to the back of the pads setting in though. Or the dirt filled in the gaps.
