I switched from V's to Avid 160's about 6 mo. ago. I mainly rode fast fire roads and usually had to replace my front V brake pads 2x before I did the rears. I have seen been riding a lot of steep single track. I checked my brakes last night and found my rears were paper thin and the rotor looks like it has been getting hot, fronts still had 50%. I am pretty sure I have been using the rear brake more often to ward off endo's. Do I need to use the front more? go to possibly 7" brakes ? I do get a liitle fade @ the end of the runs. Thanx
