    Ohio visitor camped at Picketpost, crashed, need new rear rotor. Suggestions?

    Subject pretty much says it all. I got in town last week and have been riding, using Phoenix as my hub. Did an out n' back at PP today...great ride, but crashed and hosed my rear rotor. I was able to get it rideable and made it back (obviously), but need to replace it. Any place nearby that might have a replacement? It's a Shimano 6 bolt 160.

    Hey, thanks! Actually got another reference for them since I posted...just called a minute ago. No matching rotors in stock, but they'll try to straighten mine in the morning.

    How often have you bought a replacement? Can't be profitable and carry inventory that sits around for ever. Funny though as most of us likely have one floating around the garage. Ha, another reason bikes shops don't sell many of them.

    Ohio, Welcome to AZ. Have a great time.

    My LBS has sold rotor upgrades, but they only get a few requests per year, so no stock. They warrantied my free hub this week, and had to order the 15mm hex wrench that's required to remove and replace it, because they've never had to remove the free hub from a 12mm wheel. Some parts don't see much action.
    I will suffer no butt-hurt fools!

    I'm sure I've got a couple Avid 160s laying about. Not matching, but free if it'll help you out.

    Thanks for the offer! I've PMed cstem with my info. If we can't connect or the LBS can't straighten the rotor I'll get in touch. I have to say I've met a bunch of friendly people since I've been here, you guys have (and are) a great community!

    Quick follow-up...got the rotor from cstem, but it was a 165. Tried it anyway, just a hair too big. Ended up getting a replacement at Adventure Bikes, but then noticed Lefty was leaking a bit of oil. Took it to Bicycle Ranch to have them look at it, turned out ok. Phew! Lots of running around, but new rotor is on, and I'm waiting for lunch. Just need to figure out where to ride around here and I'm good to go! Thanks to everyone who offered assistance, and to cstem for the hookup!
