Re: Need help with bike, I offer help with cars and computers!

Use a 5mm alan key and loosen the caliper retaining bolts. Once the caliper is loose see if you can move it in such a way that the disc would not catch on the calliper any more. IF you can get a business card or an old SBB ticket and stick it in between the disc and the pads on the side its catching. Pump the brake lever a few times, and then pull it tight. Hold it tight while tightening the retaining bolts.

If this doesn't work then you either need new brake pads or if the calliper can't be moved by hand far enough to stop the disc from rubbing on the calliper then you may need some shims to put inside the disc to space it out from the hub.
