It’s fine, the rotor is exactly where it should be relative to pads - same as the front.

You sure about that? it looks like the caliper is sitting above the rotor. Could be wrong, but it certainly looks that way. The pads need to have full contact with the rotor, or they will wear improperly as pyro said, plus you won't have as much braking power.

I'm a fan of the caliper between the SS and CS but there aren't many who do it.

Yup, that’s why I said it. I think it’s the photo angle and 4 pot caliper. I’ll load a pic from top when I’m not on my phone for people who are interested.

I think as rotors get bigger and stay moved further from drop out it becomes an issue with butting compromises. It’s nice on drop bar bikes, but in my experience on a ritchey does seem to pick up more mud than a caliper at 12 o’clock.

Not sure... just 11 speed 11-42 and 46 most recently... also ran a ten speed one couple years back...

I have the Box 2 cassette 11-46 in Black, SLX drive train, it shifts much better than the shimano ever did. So yeah, maybe a bad batch.
