    Hope Mini Disc Pads

    It seems the factory Hope pads got a back rap on the product reviews. Are these the ones in the green box with "Hope" written on it? Not the EBC pads?

    If so, OH NO. I just bought a bunch of them!

    What pads are good for the Mini's? I saw someone rave about the Kool Stops.

    Dunno why...

    I got the stock pads on my Mono Minis and they seem to work great. I'm nearly 200#, ride steeps, pound my brakes, cook them, etc. I've had to de-glaze them a couple of times.

    I got around 500 miles and six months on the pads, and they still have plenty of meat left in them. They do squeal a fair amount, especially when they get wet or super hot. I dunno if any of the non-OEM pads would be any different.

    I just bought some Kool Stops to hopefully address the squealing.....but I love em. Have Hopes on one bike, have em on another I am picking up tommorow, and will be replacing perhaps my trailbike brakes with em as well.
