Evening all,

Can anyone recommend a brake pad set for the Avid Juicy Carbon brakes? The official Avid ones are silly money! I can get pads for my Type-R for less!

They're knocking out sets by Clarks and EBC and people like that on eBay for less than a tenner. Anyone know if they're good enough?

Cheers.

Try Superstar Components I got some for and old pair of Juicy 3's, they worked as good if not better than Avids. :wink:

+1 on the recommendation for Superstar pads. I go for the gold sintered pads every time.
