hi guys. I have a trek 8000 with regular shimano lx disdc brakes & there is simply not enough braking power on the rear disc. The brakes were bled not long ago by the shop, I have cleaned the rotor & there is still a milimeter or so on the pads currently in there, yet no stopping power still. I have a new set of sintered pads to fit in but just in case the rotor & pads are contaminating each other somehow I want to clean the rotor. What in your opinion is the best cleaner for rotors?

install new pads, thats insufficient material.. and dont contaminate the friction material,
if you are going to attempt to clean the disc, Acetone as a solvent , perhaps?
take the wheel Out , First.

clean rotors with alcohol and bed in the new pads properly. 10-20 slow downs increasing speed slowly. never come to a complete stop because it will deposit a higher concentration of pad material in one section of the rotor
