    Hello all. I was out looking at my bike the other day and noticed this:



    It sure looks like rust to me and I was wondering if I need to replace the rotor, gently sand it off, or ???

    The bike lives under an EZ-up year round in Portland, OR, so it doesn't get the garage-treatment it deserves. I am looking at the possibility of buying a carport instead to get that extra coverage. It's been under an EZ-up for it's entire life (bought new in 2009 - pre firesale) and this is the first I've seen of it, although it gets ridden less these days than it did initially.

    Thanks in advance for your input!

    Here are a few more pics if needed:

    Surface rust. Just like car rotors when they sit a week.

    Best way to fix that is ride more!

    Take it easy first couple braking points and should come right off.

    Nice rotor!

    Thanks. I was worried so i didn't ride it after I noticed. Sounds like I should change tactics!

    The rotor is the ebr replacement. Works great (i.e. it stops the bike)!
