Avid rotor compatibility

I need to replace a warped 185mm Avid Roundagon rotor, but have only seen Cleansweeps in that size. Are all Avid rotors interchangeable? I have the BB7 brakes. Thanks

Unless your rotor is excessively worn just true it...but all the Avid 185s will work fine.

As has been established, it'll be fine.

Thanks guys. I trued it the best I could awhile back, but it still slightly rubs and drives me crazy! I'll swap it out today.

Exactly right. They almost always need to be trued up at least a little bit out of the box.

Truing is just something you have to do occasionally...not a big deal and certainly not worth throwing a rotor away over. Just doing it once doesn't mean a lot. It's when the braking track is worn that I stop bothering to true. If you had other than a roundagon I might say I'd take it off your hands even....

Are the deformations in a rotor a product of imperfections in the manufacture, or just mishandling in shipping/the shop?

I replaced it with a cleansweep that was true out of the package. I'll keep the old one around for a spare, but I mangled the wheel in a wreck and bent the rotor in the process. I've never been able to get it quite straight enough to be happy with.
