    New Rotor with Old Pads

    I just installed a new Avid G2 Rotor on my front wheel, but did not change the pads out (BB7). Do I need to bed the rotor in or is that just for new pads?

    TIA
    Don't infer malice when ignorance so easily applies.

    "Bedding in" is the process of matching the surfaces of the pads and rotor to each other, so as to use the maximum surface area for braking. It's advisable to check your existing pads for deformities or uneven wear, which can transfer (in shape) over to the new rotor. For most instances, simply sanding the pads lightly (while resting on a flat surface) will refresh the pad surfaces to being good as new.
