How will I know: Disc brake pad replacement?
I have a simple question that searching didn't answer; never owning disc brakes before how will I know when it is time to replace the brake pads? I have a trip computer on and understanding mileage depends heavily on ride style, about how many miles will the pads last? I have the standard entry level TEKTRO IO brakes.
I'm not having brake issues, I have adjusted them since I started riding last spring to cure a squeak. Just curious what I should look / listen for so I know when to replace them. For the price of a set of pads, I'm not worried about replacing them early. Just don't want a failure on the trail.
And, should I replace front and back at the same time, or OK to replace one but not the other?
Thanks for the guidance.
