Couldn't wait to take off my resin pads and get these sintered on, on my 1st attempt of bedding in process, I could hear the pad vibrating in the housing, took pads out and reinserted again the pads were vibrating in the housing, both calipers the same, the pads grab the rotors great, but this constant noise and vibration is a nitemare will be sending them back for a refund! Stick to o.e.
To be honest I just couldn't face the extortionate prices of other companies adapters. Most others are ̏25+
I was a bit concerned when I discovered that they rock back and forwards a tiny bit on the hub. This didn't cause any problems over 2 years of use - but I eventually got annoyed enough to come up with a solution. Plumbers tape between the hub and adpater didn't help. So I drilled and tapped
Atrociously bad. Fitted on Hayes 9 as the original pads gave up after 4 years. Those lasted one day...ONE DAY! On a flattish 20km xc ride, ok it was wet and muddy but those pads are made from soft cheese. Very annoyed and would expect a refund or replacement.
Could do the same with a 'screw driver and hammer', if you have a bike with with press fit BB Buy this tool!
Ok, the cost to do the complete job is near on ̏60, however if yo have a press fit BB Bike you would have spent a lot on the frame along - do the job properly an get these tools!
I ordered these on the strength of various magazine reviews. The price is amazing and the quality is up there with pedals costing more than twice as much. In use they feel solid, provide a huge platform and stick to your feet like a certain substance sticks to a blanket. I got them within 2 days posted free. Could not be better, these days theres so many shops and manufacturers out to rip us off w
