Brake pads for Trek FX 7.3

Postby robbiepapenfus » Tue Oct 16, 2012 9:21 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
