Has anyone had this problem yet? Well let me just say that it's the most frustrating thing in the world especially if your not aware that they are loose.! I just recently sent my new '05 Fox F100 back due to what we thought was obviously loose lower bushings but come to find out it was that the rivets that hold the rotors on the centerlock mount were loose. Loose just enough to cause a little bit of knock down by the axle which felt exactly like worn or messed up lower bushings.

After that debacle, I remembered feeling some jankiness in the rear brake and that one is also loose. You can literaly move the rotor back and fork even when it's tightened down in the hub! For a quick solution I'm just going to run the 6-bolt adapters by Problem Solvers and my other set of Avid rotors until I can get some type of warranty out of Shimano or a new wheelset built up. Man that sucked!

That definately reconfirmed my hatred for Shimano and love for Fox.......
