I have the same issue on a set of Suntour Superbe fronts. On mine it seems to be caused by vibration. To test I swapped out the Scott Matthauser pads that were on it, but old and sometimes squealy, with some newer generic shoes and the problem has gone away. Carry a twist tie with you on the ride. You can tie the lever closed through the slot in the caliper. I resorted to this when I first lost braking and was far from home. Jim Carter Bham, AL

I have noticed that my Nuovo Record front brake quick release tends to "flip up" to the open position by itself during a ride. Has anyone else ever had this problem. What causes this and is there a way to correct it?
Thanks in advance!
