Hi all,

I am a little stuck, I have just noticed that I have word down my rear brake pads, I was wondering do I have to change front and rear at the same time or can the front wait as they are ok. Also should I go for ceramic or gold sintered pads. I currently ride canal tow paths and the follow the dog trail in cannock.

Thank you :lol:

    replace the pads in the caliper at the same time. if the other end is fine no need to change but it may be prudent to have a spare set in the camelback.

    If your not doing a lot of wet muddy ride's, which will eat through the organic pads, your fine to stay with them, the sintered pads have a longer life but can wear out the rotor faster but thats only through a lot of use.
    F|or the type of riding you say you do I would stick with the organic pads.
