    Are Rotors really that fragile?

    I'm a disc brake newbie, let me say that up front. I bought a paragon fri, got it home to find that there was a warp in the rear rotor, I noticed the noise during the testride so I didn't warp it on the way home, mechanic said, ah don't worry about it, disc's are noisy. I'm hesitant to bring it to the bike shop where I bought the bike, just because a. they let me walk out with a bike with a bent rotor, and b. when I was doing my preride check yesterday I found that they hadn't even set the rear wheel all the way into the dropouts. Wondering about their compitence now. The question is, can I just flex this thing back into place, is it a warrenty issue?

    Check out

    The disc brake FAQ link in the upper right corner of the Brake Time forum page. It descibes the procedure to straighten out your rotor.
