    Aligning Shimano Rotors

    I'm trying to align shimano saint centerlock rotors to the calipers.
    I can't slide the caliper over any further (towards the wheel), yet it is still touching one side.
    I have opened up each side as far as they can go yet still nothing.
    Are there shims that I need to get?
    I don't remember having to use anything on other setups... But then again I'm kind of new to messing with brakes.

    Yeah, someimes you need shims/washers wih disc brakes. Try to make sure they are the same thickness.
