yes , pads and spares are easy to find :wink: a 4pots fine for the rear but i found it faded a little up front when really slamming the anchors on....... so i'd highly recomend a 6pot upfront if your dh-ing...


edit , maybe it's a combo of my heavy bike and my 19 stone that was causing the brake to not work :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

the 6pots ?

they won't make you more dashing to look at or any more awesome but by christ they'll stop you quicker than a really quick thing going really quick ! :lol: :lol: :lol:

they must be the best brake i've used (i mean for stopping power , not a brake for the weight weenies tho :wink: )
