Posted on 9th, February 2010 about 4 Pack Kevlar Disc Brake Pads

I have suffered with the awfull so called 'Turkey Gobble' noise on my Avid Juicy 3 brakes for the last 2 winters when using Avid Sintered pads. I have had the brakes setup by my LBS but this made no difference. I Googled this problem to find I was not alone and found that the main cause seems to be sintered pads. So as I friend of mine has been using Superstar Kevlar pads in his Shimano brakes all this winter, with no noise and with little wear despite the awfull conditions I thought I would try them. RESULT, no noise after bedding and they bite very well. In a Nuts Shell, if you have the so called 'Turkey Gobble' on your Avids, try Superstar Kevlar pads.
