Unique formulated disc brake pads fit ball bearing disc brakes as replacements.
This rectangular pad set, enough for one brake, works with all of the Juicy hydraulic brakes and the cable-operated BB7.
Since you never want to ride metal on metal, it's always good to have two sets of pads around, so you don't need to hustle to find pads when you suddenly realize you need to replace your old pads the Friday night before a big weekend of riding. Included in the kit are two pads and a spreader spring for one brake. Choose organic or metallic compound.
|Brake type:||Disc brake|
|Metallic brake pads:||noisier but last longer than organic; less modulation, more power|
|Organic brake pads:||quieter but wear out faster than metallic; better modulation, less power|
|Avid Metallic Disc Brake Pad for all Juicys / BB7: Pair||$20.00|
|Avid BB5 Disc Brake Pads||$16.00 - $20.00|
|Avid Elixir Metallic Disc Brake Pads||$24.00|
if you buy these, it means two things: you ride a lot and your pads last a while. both are good things, and one of the reasons I stick with juicy and bb7s for all my bikes. Easy to rack up 10000km without having to change pads, and the number can triple on the road. Pretty easy to change with just some pliers which is nice in the field.
Killer stopping power. Last a long time (metallic). Easy install for the most part.
