What does 'a little out' mean in practice?

I'd be very interested otherwise.

Pics now added.
A few things I forgot.
They are i.s. calipers and there is slight scuffing to reservoir cap fronts (see pics).

The design of this model rotor had a narrow braking surface and a lot of cut out in the middle so "a little out" is approx 2mm and catches a little on pads.
They work fine though as have had them on my 29er for a while with no problems.

Cheers Mike.

Thanks. The scuffing doesn't bother me much, but you're saying the front rotor is warped by 2mm? But it still works smoothly and it isn't noisy?

If need be, this looks a similar/identical replacement, would that be right? http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... delID=3486

If you want to sell to somebody less fussy, that's your prerogative obviously, but disc users that I ride with are always suffering with squealing etc, so I just wanted to be reassured that it wouldn't be the case here!

Anthony,

To show what it is like look at the You tube vid linked below.

I have never had any problem with it. The rotor is 180mm like the ones in the chain reaction link.

Cheers Mike.

plus you can really easily get rid of a slight bend in the rotor either by using a parktool "fork of truth", or an adjustable spanner......

I've got a Park Tool dial indicator on my wheel jig that measure the alignment of disks in 10ths of mm, if can true rotors for postage if anyone wants.
In practical terms I've trued disks, run them and they've warped again due to the heat. It's got me thinking maybe they could trued, heated in an oven or something and then over trued to compensate.
Sorry for wandering off topic, back to the nice looking and rather cheap brakes....
