I thought I read someplace before buying some Saints that the stock pads in them are not so great. I am currently running some Saints with new T-76 alu carrier 180mm rotors on my 34lb. AM rig (sees everything from steep XC to light DH/FR at times) and the front brakes especially, don't feel as powerful or as stiff at the lever as I was hoping. I have had the brake bled three times now and still doesn't feel as strong as I would like. I was hoping to not have to go up a rotor size and did most of my riding on SLX brakes w/7" rotors prior and was fine most of the time, just some fade with longer and steep descents that made me want to try the Saints. Will changing out the pads to a different material (sintered or organic) or different brand help with the feel at the lever if the brake was bled adequately or don't waste my time and just up the rotor size and weight a bit to an 8"?
