Yea that sounds about right, mine are now worn in and like perfectly
flush and mine are silent, rode with them yesterday, not a sound.

Magura HS33 - Squeals like a pig

I had the same problem!! And I know the feeling of people turning around
thinking it's a firetruck with a major emergency!!

I used normal chain oil to lube it but it only last for about 60km then
it squals again....

Hey,

My brakes usually squeal when aluminum oxide from the brake surface has
gotten into the pads.   For me, cleaning pads and the rim with a
degreaser like Simple Green, and perhaps lightly sanding the pads, does
the trick.

After saying how quiet mine were, they have now started to squeal realy
badly. I think it was after they got damp in the rain yesterday. They
have goten wet many times before and stayed quit though, weird.

I think I may try that, although everyone stares anyway, why not tell
them you have brakes by making a little noise?
