Exclamation Remeber that "noise" i had problems with? well i fixed it.

so i decided that noise was annoying me way to much, aside from the chain i was getting a VERY distinct noise from the rear break, SO i removed the entire clipper, and the pads, and as soon as i pulled the caliper away from the roter, the "pads" basically fell apart in my hands, they were only being held together because the caliper was pressed so hard against them, so i replaced the pads and now the sound is gone, AND i can actually move the bike without any force, so that means ive been riding all this time with the pads pressed in fully basically, i guess 5 years of weather just destroyed the pads :\ sounds odd i know, but it did, and what little pieces DID remain intact, were basically metal with a little bid of the pad stuff.. just thought id let those who saw my bike and were wondering the same thing know what's going on. i ordered a sproket kit this morning online, and it's supposed to overnight so i should have it wed, thanks again for the help )

yeah im still gonna replace the chain, and both front and rear sprokets, but that noise just didn't sound right it was getting worse, and it was getting harder and harder to push the bike backwards from a dead stop , so i decided to take off the breaks, and poof, not to mention a few of the pieces down there sure could be replaced, but i don't know what they are called, or where to find them, such as the little H bracket thing that holds the pads in place, from dropping down farther than they are supposed to, it's kinda broken, but anyways yeah, sounds much better now.

Were you able to depress the caliper piston back easily? Sounds like it may need a caliper too the way you say it was binding.

Thats what could have gone ugly.

There is always some lateral force on the pistons transferred from the brake pads. If the cylinder is extended too far, it can get cocked because there is only a small amount of the piston left in the cylinder and might bind locking up your brakes cause they cannot retract. Seen it happen in cars.
