    Best deals on Elixir pads??

    Not looking for organic. Here's the best deal I could find so far...

    Amazon.com: Avid Elixir Disc Brake Metal Pads with Steel (Back): Sports & Outdoors

    19.80 for one set. Can anyone do better? Thanks in advance!

    I have ordered from this seller on Ebay with good results. Fit was perfect and he has all types of different options and half the price.

    I also went this route , got 4 sets for about the same price the avid would have cost for 1 set. Have had zero issues.

    I bought Serfas pads on Jenson for like $8.

    I don't recall if they were organic or not, I haven't used them yet.

    I don't notice any difference in modulation/power from the OEM pads. That's not to say there is no difference, only that if there is it isn't enough difference for me to notice.

    I'm using their HP pads in my Juicy Ultimates, and they did improve braking (original pads are organic though), but, I had to file the backing plates a fair bit to stop them from binding.
