    Any suggestions for replacement pads for AVID disc?

    I love my avids however after about an hour of mountain riding the squeal like a stuck pig, will any of the replacment pads eliminate this? Thanks.

    Do a search and you'll find lots of information on replacement pads for the Avid discs...
    Never be afraid to try something new.

    Make sure the inner pad is adjusted as close to the rotor as possible without rubbing. If the rotor has to flex too much it can contribute to squealing.

    Any pad will squeal from time to time. My favorites are Galfer and EBC Golds.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Go to your local automotive parts store and buy some anti-squeal lubricant. Just put it on between the pads and calipers and the squeal magically goes away.
