I would find it hard to believe they left the rotors on during PC bake. If so those are some amateurs

They weren't left on. I seperated from the wheels and has them done. The previous owner had them done in yellow (puke) and I wanted a color change

so confused on this email now. the calipers were PC. or the rotors were? Lol. if your getting a shimmy vibration your rotors are done. Calipers going out would have to be something pretty serious. I would just pull your pads spray some brake clean all over them let them drip dry like my old GF is used to do on the bike. Swap your rotors new pads and be done.

I agree with this, any shimmy is caused by a warp rotor, probably a side of effect of trying to avoid the mountain.

Rotors were p/c'd. Need to replace those. Calipers need a thorough deep cleaning.

Intersting PC rotors. Since the pads id think work better on the steel instead of side walk chalk paint? You should post a pic up these things.

I'm pretty sure Nate means they are PC'd like this, not the actual part that makes contact with the pads.



If I'm wrong, I'll make sure to always ride behind him with my GoPro on.
