Brake pads....

I am planning to change the front brake pads on a 05 636. I use my bike for commuting and the occasional weekend ride and wanted suggestions on what brake pads to look into getting? Thanks in advance.

EBC HH. Will cut your stopping distance in nearly half.

Great pads for the street, even at a faster pace...

I use EBC HH on my 636, and have no complaints. They're reasonably priced, warm up quickly, and provide great stopping power on the street and intermediate track pace(back when I'd ride the track)

Don't you live up by the Woodlands, or close?


Bring it over on Saturday, we'll slip them on.

EBC HH seems to be the consensus. Thanks for the input.

For street, you really don't need anything more than that.

EBC HH up front, EBC organic for the rear. Less initial bite in the rear, less prone to locking up.

Currently on Galfer organics for the rear, I'll go back with EBC next round.
