    Anyway to fix this bend in my disc mount? pics





    The disc rubs on the mount, and even worse on the caliper when that's on.

    Is it new frame time?

    If the frame is steel, you may be able to have it straightened. If it is aluminum, very unlikely that you can save it. What happened?

    Basically i've had the bike (24seven crosser) for around 2 years, bought 2nd hand without knowledge of the bend.

    It originally had a 6" rotor on it and i've always been aware of a something not quite right down there. But with alot of tweaking i could get it to not rub.

    Now i've just gone to an 8" rotor and it's a nightmare.
