My rotor's fucked. How do I fix the piece of shit?
My rear rotor is warped. There's a section that rubs against the pads. The wheels on the bike still go round and round but it's annoying the shit out of me.
How do I fix this? I tried bending it back with my brute strength but it didn't work. The area affected is about 1/5 of the circumference and off by about 1mm.

Do exactly as the instructions in NorCal's link describe. A couple adjustable wrenches and a marker are the way to go. If your rotor isn't bent too badly, you should easily be able to fix it.Of all the muthafuckas on earth, you the muthafuckest.

Did it warp from heat or something more conventional like say .... a rock?
Chances are that it may warp again from the heat but do the whole repair anyways and use less brakes . Mine rub a bit but where it rubs changes from the heating and warping.Recently overheard: "Hey Ralph, what were you drinking that time that you set your face on fire?"

At any rate, it's a good tech article and it looks like there's more good info here as well.
Personally, I just use a crescent wrench, pushing and pulling until the rotor stops rubbing. Hope you got it worked out.
