Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

Problem: XTR disc brakes, serious rubbing.
Reason: the rotor is not exactly true.

Can I bend the rotor back to being true with for example a pliers. Will this bending work in the long run, or will the rotor go back to its original wobbly shape?

:?: Experiences?

DON'T use pliers - use an adjustable spanner wound in to grip the rotor tightly - this way the surface of the rotor won't get marked. Try to bend it backinto the orginal line small amounts at a time, moving the spanner 1/2" around each time - repeat until its straight. Don't be tempted to bend it too much each time, or you risk making it worse.

Good luck :wink:

Middle ring all the way

Wash your hands well in a simple soap/ degreaser, and flex it with yor fingers.

Success is how far you you bounce back up after being knocked down
