That is if you have disk brakes. My entry level bike has cheap hydros on it and I have fought with them from the beginning. I've always followed the directions to center the pads but it still have rubbing. I've used a crescent wrench to bend them straight but that doesn't last long and they are rubbing again. When I built my new wheels and was transferring the rotor from the old wheel to the new one I stripped a bolt... Thank goodness for that because I ordered a new rotor and it was magic. I again, went through the procedure to center the pads and guess what, no rubbing! And there is still no rubbing. This bike flies now compared to when it had the cheap warped rotors on it. I was wasting so much energy fighting my rotors every ride. The good thing about this upgrade is it is pretty inexpensive too.
Even though I still have cheap hydros on the bike they work great now that I have good, straight rotors.
