Brake pads for Trek FX 7.3

Postby robbiepapenfus » Tue Oct 16, 2012 10:21 am

Hi guys,

I am fairly new to cycling and I think its time to replace the brake pads for my Trek FX 7.3.

I was hoping you guys could help with my questions:

1: What brake pads do i need to purchase?
2: Are the brake pads specific to my bike or wheel size / type?
3: Are the front brake pads the same as the back brake pads?
4: Do you know where I can purchase break pads online?

Thanking you in advance.

Regards,
Robbie

Does your bike have "V brakes"?

Then something like Kool Stop Mountain Bike Dual Compound Pair Of Brake Blocks

The shop i bought the bicycle in Sydney (i'm in Adelaide now) recommended Shimano S65T V-Brake Pads.

They any good?
