I get a bit of disc rubbing on my setup, sometimes. Its a Trigon fork and XTR hydro calipers.
I just have to make sure the caliper is nice and clean and the pistons are free the retract fully, and the disc is centred and unbuckled. If everything is bob on then its okay. It's not a big deal for me though if it occasionally a rubs a bit, it's a minor issue and doesn't actually slow me down in any significant way.
Thanks for the info Maddog. I've managed to largely eliminate the disc rub by repeatedly playing with the centering/pad adjustment on the ground (instead of on the stand). I found that I could induce the flex and rubbing by simply pressing on the bars.
I guess I find the disc rub extra annoying because I had my old mtb set up with XT hydros and no disc rub.
On to the next issue: severe howling when braking hard.
