Well I bought this rotor after a crash that caused a guy's peg to get stuck in my wheel and destroy the stock rotor. I was a bit skeptical because I thought this 115 dollar rotor would bend just as easy, but boy was I wrong. I've been through my fair share of crashes in the notorious "C" class and the rotor has bent a little bit, but nothing that makes it unrideable. I just get a couple cresent wrenches and straighten it out and keep on riding. Although it may seem kinda spendy, it's totally worth it! Braaaaap!
