I was about to start a similar thread for my giant Toughroad with CF fork and QR. A while ago, I started to have a similar problem. Every once a while the rotor makes the "ding ding ding"noise. This seems to happen when I push on the NDs pedal or even if I coast and stand on the NDS pedal. Doesn't seem to happen to DS pedal. I re-seated the axle, re-adjusted the caliper, no resolution. I also tried to tighten the QR very tightly.

Doesn't happen all the time and seems to be limited to specific pedal forces. I recently installed new pads, maybe that put them closer to the rotor. I hope once the pad wears it will get better.

Obviously I don't want to buy a new TA fork and a new hub. I weight 175# and am not particularly strong.
