When you apply the brake it hums loud and pulsates the pedal back against the pressure of your foot. I just bought it and already love it.
Do you
have the same problem?

You need to replace the brakes and rotors. The noise is most likely just them being worn out but the pushing back on your foot is due to the rotors being warped from getting too hot.

Here are some guides that will help with this:

I also attached the process below from the manual. Let us know if you have other questions. Thanks
