careful during rain! – Brake Shoes with Pads for Bicycle (Pair) Reviews

posted by jonathanm on 11/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- these are 50% cheaper compared to what I can buy locally in the same quality
- durable, don't ware out fast
Cons:
- Be careful when it rains. When my bike is standing outside in the rain, these braking pads will slip a little without having enough friction the fist 1-2 times I need to bake, which might be dangerous. After braking 1-2 times the full braking power returns. As this difference in braking power is about 50%, it can be dangerous if you know your braking distance and like to stop in the last few cm.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you keep in mind the lower friction the first few times you brake (ex: by braking a few times when you start riding on a rainy day), these are good braking shoes.
