I recently got a new Stumpjumper and it comes with the Avid Elixir 5 SL brakes which use organic pads. I have had the bike for maybe 3 months and have done some downhill rides and the rear brake lever has to be pulled in more than the front by quite a bit to apply the brakes. They still work fine but I was wondering if its pad wear or something else?
Do organic pads not last as long? I have Hayes Strokers on my other bike and pads last forever on that thing. I guess I can look at them but figured I would find out if organic pads wear out that much faster first.
