    warp rotors

    i had an avid bb7setup with 203mm rotors and it seems that my rear rotors have a slight rubbing problem, when i checked it ,it appears that the rotor is warped , is there any remedy for a slightly warped rotor or do i have to replace it? its a new setup and i dont wanna spend for another rotor.

    You can true them, as mentioned check the FAQ. However, one of my Avid rotors (the round one I got with a BB7) will not stay true, regardless of how many times I true it. Same spot every time, so YMMV.
