Been running two sets for quite a few months. Been used in Sctoland, Wales and mainly a wet Yorkshire. Fast bedding in, scarely good compared to the original Hope Mini Monos. No problems so far very little signs of wear after 200 plus miles. Wondering if I really needed 4 sets ?
when i bought my pads back in October 07 i was sceptical that ̏21 would get me 4 sets of decent pads BUT i gave it a try
After nearly a year i'm well impressed... still on the first sets F / R Avid Juicy 5's replacing the OEM pads

Bought a pair of brake pads a couple of months ago and just put them in . they only did 17 miles . was very disapointed. Pads were down to metal. My other pads have been in since march. i ride every week.

I have been using these pads for 9 months in all conditions with no problems what so ever. They do wear faster than Avid?s, especially in the wet, however I like to replace my pads before there is any chance of running to the metal base plate.
For ̏5.00 a pop you can change on a regular basis, great value??.
Delighted with these pads, performance is great, service is first class and at this price its a nice satisfying feeling having my spares box full of pads and not haivng to run to local bike shop to pay ̏18 for one set!
These things are great - much better than the OEM's on my Juicy 7's. I rode up and down the road outside my house for 10 minutes with the brakes on to bed them in and they've been superb ever since.
Looking at them, they "appear" to be wearing a little quicker than the OEM's but that really doesn't matter at this price.
