About a week a go a friend and I were playing in some mud and I started hearing a loud squeak in my rear brake. I assumed that I just had some dirt caught in it so I washed it out when I got home and it seemed to fix it for a bit but it progressively got worse. Today, I took it apart to find that the pad had some melting and warping and the rotor was severely grooved. I know it needs replacing, I just want to know if any of y'all know if the mud caused it. I'd like to keep it from happening in the future

It's hard to tell in the picture but the grooves are almost two millimeters deep

I'd almost guarantee that a rock got stuck in the dust shield and did that damage. We had to pull a wheel while on the trail a couple weeks ago to get one out for a guy.

So I guess there really isn't anything to prevent it. I'll just try to catch it earlier. I guess this is just an excuse to upgrade :)
