Which pads? I have whatever came with the BB7s, ....
Std ones. Never did anything but adjust them.
Finally had a chance to pull the pads off over the weekend and check the wear, since I seemed to be wearing through them pretty quickly. I compared them to the new sets that just arrived, and the pads look to be around 50% gone after just under 3,000km. Of course, that is just based on the thickness of the pad all the way to the backing plate. I suspect that they will need replacing sooner than that, perhaps when the arms on the spring clip starting scraping on the disc rotor, or I am unable to adjust the pads any further.
I am trying some "non-genuine" pads as replacements, with two different compounds. Will be curious to see how they last (and how much noise they make).
