BRAKE PAD SURVEY Please respond.
Thanks for taking the time to respond to this post. Please tell your friends and buddies.

For some pad and rim/rotor combinations, pad wear is excessively high. I need lots of input (both good and bad) so that this survey can become legitimate. As good as Disc brakes are, do they go through pads so fast that they become ungodly expensive? Do ceramic rims eat pads for lunch? I will assemble the information and post as soon as I have a large enough database. Please provide the following:

1 Bike
2 Brake type (V or disc, brand and model)
3 Pad type (brand and model)
4 Rotor or rim type (brand and model)
5 Ride time or miles between pad replacement (V or Disc)
6 Ride time or miles between caliper adjustment (Disc only)
7 Ride time or miles between bleeding brakes (Disc only)
8 Ride time or miles between V-brake adjustment at the brake handle (V only)
9 Typical miles in each ride
10 Rider weight
11 Percentage of times you have experenced brake fade during a ride for any reason
12 Are you a.) not satisifed b.) satisified c.) very satisifed with your choice of brakes and pads
13 Average price of replacement pads you pay per wheel
14 State or country in which you ride
15 Do your brakes change with changes in the weather? If so how?
16 General comments.

Please, I'm interested in results from all conditions. I promise to post the results of the survey in the near future. Please post only your personal experence, not what you hear from others. If possible please post both to my e-mail address and to this forum.

Thanks

Sherman Knight

    Hi before replying your post I would like to compare your survey data with the online editing services blog bike survey data and see how the numbers are looking in both these survey reports. Your message board is awesome and this new look to your message board makes your blog look neat and tidy.
