Default Re: Brake pads question

I think this is the non-metallic pads..like the resin pads of shimano..

these kind of pads create less noise than those metallic ones..

Default Replacement Disc Brake Pads

Aside from shimano, what brand of replacement brake pads (disc brakes) can you recommend in terms of quality and price? Bang for the buck?! My current rig is using non-series shimano mech. disc brakes... medyo upod na kaya after a year kaya kailangan ng palitan. Don't want to try rebonding dahil delikado daw kaya replace na lang yung pads.

sir just try ashima pads.. mura na hindi pa masakit sa bulsa (cost around 400).. but also try the jagwire pads.. they says yung gold color type ung heavy duty (cost around 700-800).

Sirs, are there replacement pads for the shimano non-series hydros? I've tried to ask for it on some LBS that I've visited to no avail. I'm wanting a semi-metallic for my non-series to make it last longer. :D

Dont use replacement pads, bro. Your life depends on it. Only a shimano can replace a shimano. The others fall off after a few months or even weeks of use.

Recently bought XT pads at John Wilkie for P 550.00.

Default Re: Replacement Disc Brake Pads

I recently changed my SLX rotors to Ashima Airotors since I also upgraded my hubs. I did my usual burn in/setting in session and it seemed to brake well on my ride today. One of my riding companions mentioned that it's better to start with new brake pads from the get-go. I'm still using my organic pads since they seem to be holding up well and it seems like a waste to throw them away. I have semi metallic pads as standby but I'm not using them yet. Any feedback on this? Should I use the new ones already or wait until my old ones wear out. Thanks.

I've tried Jagwire and EBC. They're both good alternative parts that won't disappoint. If you can find Goodridge ones, I hear they're really good but a bit pricey.

I have jagwire reds on front, ashima on rear, on my XT Hydros. No complaints, performs like orig shimanos.

just don't buy serfas pads they are notorious for poor performance and very unreliable.

As long as it snugly fits, sir, you won't have a problem. :D

Sir, the bigger the rotor, the better your brakes can slow down your bike with greater ease. It's because as the pistons gets further aways from your wheel's center of rotation, mas efficient yung pag-ipit nya sa rotor. Consider stopping a closing door near the hinges and stopping it na malapit sa door knobs... You'll find out na mas konting effort lang ang kelangan mo to stop the door from closing pag dun ka sa door know hahawak kesa dun sa malapit sa hinges.

That being the case, your rotor will be spared of extended contact with your brake pads, thus extending your brake pad's life. :D

Sir, plan ko din ng 7" on the front and rear... Pero saka na pag may budget na. I'm using the Shimano Non-series din. :D

I don't think there should be a problem as long as they fit. Just take out your old pads and make sure the ones you buy are the same shape. Anyway there is usually an indication on the packaging whether it's "for avid" or "for XT XTR" or "for Hayes". Of course feedback regarding performance and durability should be looked into. What is also important is what type of material do you need: Resin, semi-metallic, or metallic. Each has it's own pros and cons.
