anybodys brake squeek?

my front brake just squeels like nuts. i really hate it but there seems to be nothing i can do. i adjust it so the pads wont touch but then i must pull the brake lever all the way before it starts braking a little.. :P

take some sand paper and do a crisscross pattern on the pads and on the hub then clean it out really good with brake cleaner or partswash.

My Peugeot TSM had that problem when I got it....the front squeeled like crazy and the rear was not even really there. I havnt got new shoes yet, but I really tightened down the rear and the front my friend tightened down the minor adjustment screw on the cable and it actually stopped making that noise. I would say tighten it more.....
