Video: How To Fix A Bent Disc Brake Rotor | Trailside Mountain Bike Maintenance

Although disc brakes pretty much remove the issue of a buckled wheel, you can still suffer the consequences of a big hit on a downhill. Now, it has to be a really big smash for your wheel, but, in some cases you can bend your disc brake rotor. This is something that you need to fix ASAP – bent rotors can play havoc with your disc brake pistons and more.

There are a couple of fixes for this one. If you still want to use your brake (we’d recommend this route), try bending it back like we show you in the video.
