    New question here. Missing Bolts?

    I was just curious about the dangers of riding while knowing you are missing one of the 6 bolts that holds the rotor onto your rear hub? It stems from a long story, but in short I stripped the bolt, and drilled it out in order to remove the rotor, I replaced the rotor but now the hub doesn't accept the bolt all the way.
    I have a new wheel coming this week but still wanted to ride in the meantime, no problem or advise against?

    Just make sure the other 5 bolts are good and tight. You should be fine.
