    Bent beyond repair !?!

    So some rocks got kicked up during yesterdays ride, and I bent the hell out of my rotor. Definitely not in shape to go hit up another trail.
    So...do you guys think I can take this to a shop and have them true this back to straight, or should I just get a new 6" rotor from hayes? I can't seem to find them anywhere if someone could give me a link. The brakes are Hayes Comp's most likely from the early 2000's.

    Whatcha think?

    Thanks

    Yeeaaaaah . . . . you're going to want to replace that. Even if you could bend it back, I'd worry about its structural integrity.

    I've got a brand-new never used 180mm Hope saw rotor I'd be happy to part with for cheap!

    007 is it a 6 inch, and will it bolt onto my stock bighit hub? I think its like 6-8 T-25 torx bit bolts.
    And how cheap?
