OK, my friggin rear shock blow up, literally.. blow oil everywhere and I mean everywhere!! ...
anyway, I cleaned everything and the oil did get on the brakes and pads. I cleaned them with just Alcohol and believe it or not they are working just fine, but, they are 1/2 worn anyway so this is my excuse to get new pads
so.. what is everyone using?
I've try a bunch...
Avid Sinister (stock) hated, loud, odd vibration/pulse on front,
Jagwire Organic - Liked the best, can't seem to find anymore, don't last long though
Disco Brakes, organic - used many times over the past few yrs, OK, pads stop nice but they shape the pad kinda funny and have had multiple issues with the way the pad material is shaped and the springs sitting correct, more than once the spring has ended up moving/slipping and hitting the rotor
Serfas Ok cheapy pads, noting bad, but nothing good to say
one's I've been thinking of getting.. Swiss Stop, kinda pricy - Promax, super cheapo but actually heard good things..
anyone got any good pads? I prefer organic's over Sinister/metals, just quieter and I'm not doing any crazy downhill or anything sooo..
Also read some people are using one organic and one sin pad? does it really do anything? outboard Sin or Org? does it matter which is where?
