We all know these aren't top of the line components but these are great replacement pads for the brakes on your bike if you're reading this. I like to lightly scuff them with 100-200 grit so they can really conform to your discs but I'm not sure if this is the best advice. I did it on this install and after a few hard brakes they were locking up the tire really well.
Good wet and dry stopping. made a slight squeak initially, but turned out to be an issue with rotor resonance, not the pad. fixed by changing resonance frequency of the rotor. these pads work and last! will continue to buy them for my bb7's
