Bought a pair for some Shimano 535 brakes and a pair for Elixir r's followed the bedding instructions for the shimano's and now they have negligable bite and glaze over very quickly. Didn't bother for the Avids and they work fine but i don't get the impression they'll last as long time.

 Superstar Comment: Hello if the pads glazed over while bedding in this indicates that the rotors had contamination on them. We always reccomend new rotors as contaminated or badly worn rotors will cause you lots of problems. its worth checking your calliper seals arent leaking as thats a common cause.
