Default Unknown squeeling

This has been going on for a month or so now. Getting a squeezing sound from my rear wheel/brake area. There is no time that it normally happens. Sometimes around 50, sometimes around 20. Sometimes it won't happen for a couple of days then randomly squeak for a few miles then be gone again.

I initially thought it was the wheel bearing (even though I had the wheel bearing replaced last summer). I started thinking it was something else because it would randomly squeak and it isn't constant like my prior experiences with a wheel bearing. Any thoughts anyone?

Sounds like you need new bake pads.

Does he get the silicone units, or perhaps a hand made craft store one? I think Sur La Table has a sale right now...

Silicone bake pads are guaranteed not to squeal. ;0

Haha not sure if sarcasm or legitimate statement.

You need to inspect your brake pads. Are they worn thin?

After a long delay I finally got the chance to check the rear brakes and they definitely need to be changed. Thank you for your help!
