    Hayes rotors.

    So I've been riding my Trek Session 7 for about a year and a half now. Recently the rear rotor has began to rub against the caliper, It has become warped. Can this be fixed or do I need to replace the rotor?

    If pro is the opposite of con, then progress is the opposite of congress?

    You can true a warped rotor by using an adjustable wrench (with the jaws adjusted to the width of the rotor) to gently bend the rotor back into true. Do a little at a time and check your work often.

    Disc brake FAQ tells of how to true a rotor.

    Sounds like your caliper may need to be centered as well.

    Check your hubs and pivots for any play. Torque everything and mounting hardware to spec.

    you can lay the rotor on a piece of glass or mirror to see most warpage cleanly
