Mavic Exalith Brake pads
edited July 2013
Is there a special way to set these up?. Only been out on mine and squeaking when braking hard I have been told they do this for the first few miles until bedding in, is this correct?.
that sounds about right
they'll *always* whine a bit due to the surface, it lessens once the rims get a build up of brake pad meterial - pad wear is rapid at first
if they're actually squealing, make sure the pads are set with the front 0.5-1.0mm closer to the rim than the rear
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny
Cheers for info
Yeah mine did this when you really brake in anger, soon stops but the first set of pads wear out super fast-luckily the second set seem to wear as normal
"It never gets easier, you just go faster"
Easiest way to set these up with the correct amount of toe-in is to get someone to hold the brake lever in whilst you loosen off the pad holder bolt. Put a credit card in between the rear of the pad and the rim, then re-tighten the pad holder. Toe in now set, repeat on the other 3 pads.
