Roadie turned to Disc Brakes
A few years ago I bought a hydraulic disc brake based bike for my winter beast. Time to change the fluid and replace the pads but I'm in a new world of what to buy. The replacement fluid kit is easy to buy but there seems little information (or too much!) when it comes to the pads. I have shimano RS 8020 brakes and I believe the fin type of pads on the front. I'm not sure what tI need to buy. I get the impression certain pads fits all sorts of models but I don't know what is what. I think I'm getting close and then there is the MBT/Road confusion. Also - when it comes to possibly buying non shimano brands it gets worst (some people suggest one never buys shimano pads but other non branded types). It also appears (I think) you do not have to fit the fin type if you want to. (Replacement rim brake pads was a lot less confusing). Any help appreciated - brakes are getting a bit spongy and near to the handlebars!
