Effective brake shoes for my mountain bike – Brake Shoes with Pads for Bicycle (Pair) Reviews

posted by CharlieOnFire on 08/06/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Good value. Two different compounds bonded to perform best braking result and it really works. Easy to install.
Cons:
The hex hole is kinda shallow when you insert the allen key to tighten it to the bracket. be very careful not to slip during installation.
Other:
Overall, a very good brake shoes to replace your worn set. Nothing wrong with it. Critics say won't use it and worry about the quality. Hey, if you are a serious downhill cyclist, go for high end brake or disk brakes. There's nothing wrong with this. How about the poor set you've seen at WalMart? Will they stand for extreme downhill? Come on. I have them installed on my kinds mountain bike for transporting to school and he's happy for how smoothly and quickly it stops the bike.
Bottomline:
Definitely not for extreme condition. But if you owned a $100~150 bike, there's no better one than this. You can't go wrong.
