I clean the rotosr with alcohol every 2 - 3 hundred miles. If the pads get too much road dirt and oil on them, then replace the pads. As with new pads or rotors, cleaning with take a few miles for the pads to seat and work well. I also find the metallic (sintered) pads work better than the organic (resin or semi metallic) pads. As mentioned before, compressionless housing is important along with correct adjustment. Because the Avid BB7 has one piston and the TRP Spyre has two pistons, the adjustment will be different.
