    New question here. Blued Rotors

    Are blued rotors ruined, or can you still use them. If I use new brake pads. What would be the best rotor to use for downhill?

    Yes you can still use them, the blue is from the heat. I've had several rotors turn blue and it eventually wore off. For DH you would typically use 203mm rotors. What brakes do you have?

    I have XO brakes front rear, 200 up front 180 on the back. With HS! rotors from Avid. I'm looking into putting a 200 on the back if I can.
