    I was looking at this Kona that sold recently on here and couldn't help but notice the beefy looking rear and what appears to be the rotor on backwards:

    Is this correct? A special rotor design that deliberately stresses it in the wrong direction? I know, the crepe they got me working on here in the office really makes me dig deep now and then on the recent posts list....

    Maybe I will be trendy and flip my rotors too. Add "a little compliance" to my braking, yeah , that's the ticket.

    Hylex brakes? So, it's a road bike/CX? It'll probably (TM) be all right (with a rotor that size). It's still not smart, though.

    I'd switch it if it were my bike.

    What's more intriguing is how someone ended up doing that despite all the writing on the opposite side saying not to.

    I got another rear wheel that might need some TLC @jimvreeland

    actually it definitely does.
