    Quietest pads?

    Have searched but didn't come up with exactly what I was looking for.

    I want quiet brakes, in any conditions. Howling brakes are probably the most irritating thing I can think of on a bike. Any pad will offer me plenty of stopping power, it's flat around here. What's the quietest? Do I need to buy Avid pads or is the off brand stuff all over ebay fine? And are organic pads the same as semi-metallic?

    I'm running Avid Juciy 3's.

    So your Avid brakes are making a lot of noise - have you tried getting another brand of brake all together, say some Shimano's or some Maguras, what about Hygias? I have all 3 and non of them make a bunch of noises. But my friends with Avids, turkey call all the time.

    I've always had good luck with Avid organic pads. They dont last as long, but they are much quieter.
