    Fixing Bent Rotor

    I got a bent rotor on my back wheel nothing overly serious but id like to straighten it out. Right now im just running a little extra slack so it doesnt rub the brake pads... I was wondering how i go about straightening the rotor. If it helps it is a Hayes mechanical disc brake.

    Thanx

    Check out the FAQ on the column of the farthest right of this forum.

    To make it simple, a crescent wrench, some body english and a LOT of patience will do the trick.
