found the solution to disc brake rub (lol)

problem: disc brake rubs

solution: loud hub

bout 2 weeks back finally finished building my new rear wheel with an older hope hub (819 rim), now i'm having the damndest time truing the rotor (can't do 1 pad at a time, juicy brakes), meh w/e i got it good enough so it won't cause heat build up i guess, but the rub sure as hell doesn't bother me on the trail

(ps: yeah i've used a flashlight, pedaled foward while checkin white paper ect, and i've got it pretty good, just not perfect, so i don't really care, i'm just amused)

With juicy's once the rotors get warped, it's easier to just replace them.

hope xc

and btw i'm just amused, not trying to complain or anything, i'msure if i spent enough time i could true the rotor better, but it just doesn't bother me with the loud hub, juicys do seem to be pretty hard to get the rotor true but i'm generally able to do it allright

Get a Hayes v6/v7 rotor...I'm running them with my Elixirs. They are so much better than Avid's G3's...or G2's...or G1's
