    In need of some brake pads for my 2012 epic s works XX brakes

    My rear pads are pretty shot and looking for a good set to replace them with. I see they make organic with steel or aluminum backing, as well as sintered pads. Any reccomendations?

    so I bought some jagwire pads for the rear and so far they work really well. I have about 50 miles on them, and I cleaned rotors good once I put them on. I do not have anymore vibration/harmonics.

    i just bought some kool stops, organic with aluminum backing. my last pads howled like crazy no matter what i did, felt like a spode at the trails. i installed these last night and scrubs my rotors 1 last time and cleaned with rubbing alchohol, i went and bedded them in and on the 3rd pull it lifted the rear wheel easily, tons of power and modulation and quiet! both sets front and rear for under 40.00 shipped!

    Thanks for this information. What brake setup are you running?
