Could be but I don't think so. The rotors are only a year old and DBA slotted units. The worst wobble was right after exiting a trail that was mostly uphill. Then I climbed up the rest of the way to the top of Molas pass before descending into Silverton. So the brakes should have been cool going into my wobble.

I've tried to recreate the DW on my way to work this week. I drop about 1500' into Durango on my morning commute. Even riding the brakes I can't get it to wobble again.

I think the beating on the trail might be shifting a worn TRE? But I need to get the pry bar out this weekend and take a closer look.
