    I had an XTR brake (with solid steel rotors) come into the shop this week that had worn all the way through the pad backing material (resin pads, alloy backing) and into the piston faces enough that they had to be replaced. That was a new record for pad wear at our shop. I asked him if the brake had been making a terrible sound and for how long. He said all summer.

    Seeing is believing!
    He was just getting down to the good stuff. Once through the slippery steel coating the alloy rotor core has mad bite! I consider those rotors properly broken in.

    Iíve always valued your contribution (particularly the mechanical insights) to this forum

    My comment is not an accusation, just an advisement to avoid looking FOR the worst every week. Thereís a big difference, but slippery slope, between ďdonít be this guyĒ as adviser and ďholy sh!t! Look at what this moron did!Ē
    The internet is a little like a bar, a wonderful place where we can bullsh(t our past, but it also, is full of reasonably reliable sources of information to be used as ammo to call "bullish)t."

    Under #bikeshophorrors on insta, Iíve seen bikes that I know belong to specific individuals... partly because this sort of thing often starts with a unique third or seventh owner bike. Sure, I (usually) understand the circumstances of those (3?) bikes but that doesnít mean that the repetitive posting is professional.

    Beneficial for noob's that may have little awareness towards bicycle maintenance.

    I'm amused to see a variety of hardware store slotted, Phillips or hex bolts as fixes across a variety of fasteners that would normally be found on some assemblies. All they had to do was turn around at Home Depot/Lowes and look through the specialty drawers for the proper fastener. Finding wood or drywall screws on auto body panels and such. ;)
