^ tama si sir jester. You have to adjust the position of the caliper, malamang not the whole part yung kumakapit sa rotor kaya di pantay yung pudpod nya.

That's normal on my experience...bihira talaga maka prefect ng pudpod sa break pad... Just do the switch and change method..

Pag napudpod na ang "aggressive" side, just switch it with the "non-aggressive pads".. then replace the wore "aggressive" pad with a new one... so on a so forth.. ;)

You can use SHIMANO non-series brake pads for this kind of hydro brake.... I should know, I use it on my commuter bike! :-)

Meron din yung MOB na brake pads na compatible with Tektro Auriga.... ito ang gamit ko ngayon.

Sir, try nyo lagyan ng "paningit" between sa caliper at frame. Yung dati ko pong frame tabingi yung caliper kapag hinihigpitan ko na yung bolts ng caliper. Kapag maluwag yung bolts pantay yung caliper at naka-align yung pads sa rotor pero kapag hinigpitan na tumatabingi. Kaya nilagyan ko po ng minipis na washer (parang O-ring) pero hinati ko sa gitna (parang letter "C"). Tapos nilagay ko po sa ibabaw ng bolts ng caliper bago higpitan ng husto yung bolts. Hindi po kasi naka-align ng maayos yung brake mount nung frame ko kaya medyo tabingi yung caliper.

HTH.

Sir, nagkataon lang po yung nakuha ko noon na frame e hindi maganda yung brake mount. Yung gamit ko po kasi na Brakes (Hydraulic Shimano non-series), nakabit ko na sa 2 frame at walang naging problema.Hindi po tabingi yung calipers. Pero yung dati kong frame tabingi sya at kailangan ko pa lagyan ng washers.
