Anyone fancy a wafer .....
thin brake pad on the back of their LC?!
I know this is a known problem but I couldn't believe what I found when I changed the pads today. One had about 0.5mm on it and the other was cigarette-paper thin!
So the stats:
2014 GSA LC
Brembo Carbon Ceramic Pads (Brembo 07BB0335 rear caliper brake pads | BRA70335)
Total of just over 4,500 miles from new.
Now I know this wasn't because I drag my foot over the brake pedal - the most regular criticism of my riding is that I don't cover the rear brake pedal enough.
The front pads have done 10,500 miles and have plenty of life left in them.
Did I pick the wrong replacement? This time I've gone on the advice of my local bike shop and fitted EBC FA209/2HH's.
I will be watching the new ones much more carefully!!
Less than 5k miles - I ask you!!
