I am just about finished with building my Jabberwocky up and the only thing that hasn't gone perfect is the rotor on my rear wheel. It's barely rubbing and I think with some riding it will wear so that it doesn't make noise. It is bad enough that I cant make a correction to the pads large enough to stop the noise. My front rotor is perfectly true doesn't rub a bit. They are both new out of the box. I saw the drumstix and the park truing tool. When I use my crescent the whole rotor seems to flex and I'm left pretty much right where I started.
So do you guys think I should ride it awhile and see if it corrects, buy the drumstix tools or park tool and work on it some more so it's perfect like the front, or would it be worth having it trued up at the shop (assuming with the trails around here it shouldn't go out of true again). Man I wish it was perfect like the front. The noise isn't that bad but aside from that the bike would be silent.
I did spend some time read the FAQ and I would appreciate any further direction... can i get it done with a cresent wrench? Ugh! What do you guys think? When i work on it flexes so much I just don't think I'm isolating the area effectively.
Thanks for any time,
