Stupid Front Rotors! How in the heck did I bend the front LEFT rotor?? My disc lock always goes on the front right.


What the heck makes them do that?

Any clues as to where I can buy another and not pay $$$ ?

This thing is expensive. Most toys are, I guess...

Most of the time it when you park your bike with the brakes being hot...

I don't understand...
Park my bike with the brakes being hot? You mean just letting it sit there after a hard run and not letting the air cool them down by riding it around at slow speeds? Maybe I'm missing something here...help?

you are correct... When you stop hard (from high speed really fast) the pads get really hot... if the disk does not move, it transfer the heat from the pad to that part of the disk. At this point the disk will warp.

Wow, that sucks. I guess I need to take one of those little 12V fans and duct-tape it to the forks. I think I can pull one out of my beer/cooler hat I wear when I ride...


Stupid!Stupid!Stupid!


Maybe I could just
on them after a hard run....
