    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    A little squeaky for the first week, then quiets down.

    Good braking pads

    posted by torun on 05/12/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The price is good. Seems to be a hard rubber, so I think it may last longer. Easy to install in my Shimano V-brakes, just got the old ones out and put these.
    Cons:
    When they get wet they efficiency gets drastically reduced. I mean, much more than my old ones. So be very carefully when using...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    have been ordering these brake pads for my bikes now for a number of years. I don't bother shopping around, I just log onto DX annd buy these. They are long lasting and I know when i pull the brakes, that I will stop. I ride in all weather and pads are no...
    Cons:
    The only con with the shopping experience is the time it takes for delivery. Apart from that, the pads are great.

    Great braking pads

    posted by thepupil on 11/29/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    These breakpads have good braking power on my steel (chrome) rims. Much better than the stock ones that I had before (oltimer racebike). Great way of installation on your bike. Although this oldtimer needed some improvisation. Fun color and possible 2 dif...
    Cons:
    None at the moment. Still wondering how it will perform when raining.

    Pros:
    Comes packaged. Good design and quality. Longer than typical pads (72mm length). Comes with all the washers and nuts to properly install them.
