    Simple Evo mod reviews

    I had a good (but hot) ride Sunday morning and just wanted to provide some feedback on the few mods I have done to my Evo.

    Spank Spike Pedals - light, flat, grippy, awesome.
    WTB Pure V Race Saddle - I no longer feel like I was violated by a 900lb gorilla.
    Tubeless - I couldn't notice any significant weight difference, but running lower pressure did indeed help out on the trail.
    Hayes Metallic pads (these were shipped to me from Hayes directly but I couldn't find them on the Hayes web site or anywhere else other than walmart!!! Hayes Sintered Metallic Mountain Bicycle Disc Brake Pads - Pair - Prime - 98-26517-K001 - Walmart.com) - Much, much quieter. After a 3h trail ride I am happy with these pads. No noticeable noise on the trail and they are very powerful. My only problem was getting used to how powerful the brakes are now... I came off a jump or drop a time or two and grabbed a bit too much on the front and almost went over the bars. Also had to be really careful on the soft stuff not to lock it up. Good problem to have, though. Rather have too much power than not enough.
