Extend Brake Pad Life
Big thanks to Trevor Sellars for this tip!
Here's a tip to save you a few dollars! If you have the small round button brake pads, it's usually the inner pad bolted to the rear plate that wears thin first. Undo the bolt pull, out pad and slip in a small washer over the threaded bolt welded to the back of the pad. Reassemble the pad, hey presto a few more weeks or months of wear. If you order E.B.C. BLUE PADS Ref293 they are harder and last longer. The 293S are the green softer compound version.
