    BB7 pad options?

    My stock BB-7 pads SQUEAL LIKE A PIG! Not quite as bad as Ned Beaty in "Deliverance", but pretty close. What do you'all suggest for longevity and silence...are both possible?
    Only if I got paid to hang out in my garage and tweak on my bikes...

    disco brake are good stuffs. But even simple organic BB7/Juicy pad took care of the problem on my. IF all else fail, use the Alligator Serration Disc brake rotor from price point.

    I use only EBC Gold pads. Sometimes they make noise. Silent 99% of the time. Proper brake setup is key (with ANY brake, pad and rotor).

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    ^^^^ That thing about proper setup. Mine will howl every now and again for a moment, but then they pipe down and work. I run BB7's with stock pads, but I'm running Ashima AirRotors.

    Swiss Stop Green pads .

    I had backing plates warp on a set of quiet Disco soft ceramic pads, sent the pads to Disco, promised refund, never got one.
