    Formula RX brake pads....

    Has anyone used the Jagwire pads for these brakes? I need some new pads and a set (f+r) of the formula sintered or organic ones are $50+, where the Jagwire are $30ish for the f+r.

    What's the performance difference between the sintered/organic. Will the Jagwire ones hold up?

    Don't know about Jagwire, but I have been using Superstar pads for two years now on my RX brakes and they've never failed. Super cheap too.

    You want the F3 pads for an RX brake.

    The Kevlar ones are my favorite but you burn through them quickly. I've been using the sintered ones for a while now and they are great, last a long while but are a bit noisy.

    $50 sounds high, I find them for 25-35 on sale usually, I like the sintered much better, especially in front.....organics dont last but a little quieter...

    Formula RX brake pads....

    I was talking about buying a set front and rear for $50+, not single set. I ended up paying $26 each for the sintered, total 52

    Kool-Stop probably makes the pads for Jagwire...

    I found that Kool-Stop pads are better, stronger, more quiet than Formula's stock pads.

    I bought Kool-Stop Formula pads from this ebay shop, shipped quickly
