I had never replaced the disc brakes on my Cannondale hydraulic disc brake bike and didn't realize how much they had worn until I experienced the new ones. Easy to install and ordering from BTD is a cinch! I had actually checked several local shops but no one carried them.
This was my first time replacing pads on disc brakes, and it couldn't have been easier. While not strictly necessary, the Park Tool PP-1.2 Hydraulic Piston Press can be a helpful tool to have for this as well.
It is tough to my lay eyes to figure out when it is time to replace disc brake pads-on the bike. According to Sram's video you need to remove the pad to measure it; Something best done at home. So, I haven't replace pads myself yet, but I did get the Park micrometer to learn that at this time, there was loads of wear left on my brake pads. I'll remove the present pads every few weeks to measure them and update this review once I actually do the replacement. Side comment; It irks me in the Sram how to video on disc-brake pad replacement, they talk about using a disc brake spacer to open up the calipers before inserting the new pads. Where am I going to find a disc brake spacer? How come they're not readily available? How come one didn't come with the disc brake pads?
If your disc brakes and rotors are in good repair and adjustment, these pads will be stop you and do it quietly. Because they're made from an organic compound, they won't wear down your rotors as fast. The downside? In wet conditions, they won't stop your bike as fast as the semi-metallic pads.
Expecting more from SRAM. The Level brake group supplies only mediocre stopping power. They came standard with my SC Tallboy and in a strictly cross country situation they are just ok, but when things start getting steep and deep they cannot keep up. I have an 8 year old TREK outfitted with XT and they have far superior stopping power and a 11 year old custom SS with XTR that blow the SRAM's away. Waiting for something to break on the Level's so I can feel good about swapping out to a better system. And SC Bicycles, come on.....
