    Problems with Shimano Disk Brake Brake Pads.

    This is getting annoying. I've just lost the friction material off another brake pad. It's not worn away, it's broken off the backing plate and been ejected out of the caliper. *The good pad in the picture is not the other pad from the pair it's one that's been kicking around my box of bits...

    Anyone had "correct" brake pads refuse to fit?

    I'm having trouble fitting new brake pads into my calipers. The brake is a Promax DSK 717, it's basically mechanically identical to the Avid BB5 and has two round pads which secure in place with a spring. The pads come out one by one through the slot where the rotor sits. These are the pads...

    What disc pads?

    Hi all, I have a Merida Ride Disc 500 bike which has Shimano RS785 160 discs according to the spec. I was just wondering what disc pads are suitable? And are they hard to fit, I believe they may be mechanical so no need for hydraulic work. Many thanks

    I can't seem to find the Tektro brake pads P437 for sale anywhere. I saw them on Wiggle last month, but they don't sell them now. Does anyone know where I can get them from in the UK or which brake pads have replaced them?

    Finding the correct brake pads - 2009 Trek 8500

    I am looking for some new brake pads for my Trek 8500 (2009). I have looked on the caliper for some type / part numbers and cannot see any. The Trek archive is no use as it just lists the brakeset as Deore XT Ti. I have bought some of the correct pads a few years back, but I cannot remember...

    Brompton B75: How to fix Uneven brake pads on front wheel?

    Morning all! Mere kilometers away from my 200km goal this month, my bike riding buddy noticed that the brakes on my bike were constantly biking on the front wheel (a lot more so on one side than the other). First I tried adjusting the brakes using the nut on the brake levers, but they made no...

    First, some days ago I replaced the brake pads with new ones named "Saccon set brake pads Magura". The brake handles have screws at their base, that are used to bring the pads closer in order to compensate for wear. But I had to leave them at their end of range, in order to have some braking...

    Hi there, wondering if anyone knows whether it's possible to swap my tektro R350 brake pads with Shimano items. The existing Tektro ones don't have the cassette type where you swap out the rubber blocks only such that you find on Shimano. Can I simply swap the whole block or will they be...

    Ceramic Rims and Ceramic-specific Brake Pads

    I have treated myself to a pair of DT Swiss ceramic rims so I thought I'd better get some special ceramic brake pads for my (Ultegra) calipers. I've tried both the "special" pads and the normal ones and can't tell the difference in braking performance. I imagine the ceramic pads are a harder...

    which brake pads

    Hi, What sort of brake pads do I need for HY/RD disc brakes? Google suggests TRP-BP-B20.11, but also suggests that a number of much more commonly available pads (including some shimano) are compatible. Any wisdom or recommendations? (something I could pick up at Halfords tomorrow would be...

    Upgrade on these bike shoes/pads

    I've got these on my beat-up single speed. I've only had them on for about four months and they've already worn thin. Probably something to do with my mostly cycling around central London and braking for traffic lights. Anyway, does anyone have suggestions on an upgrade to these? I imagine...
