Brake disc pads ?

Postby RandG » Sat Nov 10, 2012 16:33 pm

Looking to get a spare set of pads, front and rear for my Boardman FS, but having looked on ebay there seems to be millions of them, some the same shape as mine, most aren't :?


How do I know if I'm getting what's right, but just picture alone :roll:

And better than simtered, IMHO.
Also Discobrakes (Carboncycles).
Most places have an identifier. Superstar have a dropdown when you buy and a poster thingy with all the shapes on.
If you use Superstar might as well buy 4 sets - 2 sets costs £20, 4 sets £25
