Postby rubertoe » Tue Jan 08, 2013 12:24 pm

I have shimano disc calipers (R505) on my CX and i have no idea which brake pads will fit. (deore I assume?)

Sintered last longer and are made of metal, probably overkill for the road. They're good if you ride a lot in wet sand, but arent as outright powerful as organic.


Have a look at superstar components, their disc pads are the cheapest I can find.

Cheers Prawny,

I think I have figured out the shape.
