- Disintegrating brake pads
I’ve always been a staunch defender of a certain brand of pads, but this was quite exciting:

Yeah – not all pads are created equal! Had terrible experience with pads from Discobrakes.com – one did just the same as yours and a couple just crumbled after a few months!Posted 6 years ago
im currently moving wholesale back to oem pads. Never ever had an issue with oem but pads with paint on that stick in the calipers, poor pad materials and non consistent brakes make me think that spending double is worth it.Posted 6 years ago
I’ve had something pretty similiar with Shimano OEM- not quite the whole pad but a big chunk, it unbonded at one end then braking forces broke it. And a (er, I think) ebc motorbike pad, that was exciting. And you can find examples of it with most manufacturers, I get the feeling it’s something that just happens to brake pads sometimes.
Probably more with some than others though 😉Posted 6 years ago

My first Uberbike pad experience hasn’t been great. I had to take a Stanley knife to them to trim away excess pad material and glue just to get the retainer to fit. Performance is ok though.Posted 6 years ago
I threw my racematrixes in the bin, they just didn’t seem to be up for hard use. Shame as they were really good for the xc stuff I’d done, excellent feel etc.Posted 6 years ago
