    The BBDB became the BB7. They and the Juicy use the same pads.

    I prefer EBC Golds.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    just a few updates, brake pads came in, i install them adjust here and there but they do not stop like they should be. pretty much no stopping power.
    in summary
    - my rotor is clean no oil at all
    - new pads installed
    - adjustment made
    - still no stopping power, yes i did adjust lever and all that.

    please help

    New pads need to bed in. Find a small hill and drag the front to heat it a little then brake hard but don't come to a full stop. Do this 3 or 4 times for both the front and the rear.
