This. So true. Take the time to do it right the first time.Calnago wrote: ↑Fri Sep 13, 2019 11:30 pmIt’s kinda like the first thing that should be done when installing discs, just like aligning a derailleur hanger before slapping the drivetrain on, or facing BB shells etc. Yet, it seems to be one of those things that often gets ignored, even by shops. Then, only if there’s a problem does it get looked at. Makes me wonder how many discs are out there where the mounts weren’t faced, yet the brakes are working ok, kinda sorta, but could be so much better if the mounts they’re sitting on were properly faced.bm0p700f wrote:Has the op face the mounts. This is something often overlooked.
I suspect it is often not done because the room for error is low (or the consequences of an error are high... presumably warranty would be compromised), especially if a customer is infront of you with a 10,000$ special order bike. Kind of like cutting a carbon steerer tube for a slammed setup.
