    give them a little time to break in, they don't suck, they just aren't crazy strong. i bought 2 pairs of sintered pads to use once the stock ones aren't up to par or wear out, i'll for sure be using the sintered ones before race season starts.

    They do suck. Quite badly in fact. They get way to hot and glaze over very easily.


    If you are using the 7's for DH get some oganic pads. I have used clarks brand with good luck. Never seen at any place beside one of my LBS's though

    Seriously, let them break in abit, they should be a sinterd pad from the factory. They work very well, just take a run or two to fully break in. My front set has lasted 4 years and is still working great, the rear pads I just finally replaced.

    How long do organic pads last? Will they just grab the rotor better?

    Organics dont last as long, but they do work well, and tend to be less noisy

    organics aren't as strong as sintered in most cases. denjen, you broke yours in incorrectly or maybe you have a different model year where the pads were manufactured strangely. mine are 08s and the pads are great, i have ridden the brakes about 3 times now and they were broken in after the first 3-4 runs for me. i do think that the stock pads are organic though...
