I thought about posting this is the braking forum, but I've already decided to replace the rotor. My main issue is what is the best way to fix the rest of the rear hub? So here's my dilemma:
I was riding through a rock garden on my brand new Superlight and didnít quite make it over a rock. The back end of the bike came up, I bailed, and the rear rotor came down on a rock. The rotor bent and Iím just going to replace that, but I also bent the mount that attaches the rotor to the rear hub. With my Deore hub, the rotor is riveted to the mount. Iím not an expert about what I can do to fix this, but I was thinking I of the following options:
1. Source an Avid rotor that is already riveted to the mount
2. Source an Avid rotor and a 6 point bolt rotor mount (like from an XT hub) and attach the rotor with bolts.
3. Source an Avid rotor and a new rear hub (maybe an XT hub).
4. Just buy a brand new rear wheel and hub and call it a day.
I'm attaching some pictures that show where the rock impacted the rotor/rivet/rotor mount area and where the rotor mount has deformed (at the rivet)
What is everyoneís thoughts?
