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
The pads themselves needed very little bedding in to start and have performed without question every time i pull the lever !
pad wear has been good, with th
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.
[ Superstar Ed: In most cases poor allignment or bedding in would cause wear this quick, or riding at Hit the North in 2 foot of mud. Please send them back and we will look and see what caused
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.
Buy some now!
further to my previous review I have had no more problems with the pad coming away from the backplate and have since bought more pads for my other bike which seem to be going great guns. Ive also purchased a bottom bracket some time ago which has held up as good as any shimano bb that I have tried. However when it did start to click I commited the cardinal sin of missreading "do not dissassemble "
Good pads, Although they wear out slightly quicker than the normal pads, but for 20quid for 4 sets, and your all set for a race weekend on fresh pads.
Great service too, Came really quickly, no hassle.
I'll be ordering some more soon... Very soon!
