You get what you pay for

Posted03 February 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Cons: Poor quality
Got these as I just thought brake blocks would be brake blocks and just went for value.
To be honest they were very fiddly to fit, as the fittings were standard nuts as opposed to the allen kind, so awkward to get a spanner to. May just be awkward on my bike however, so I just reused the fittings off the old blocks.
Now been using them for a couple of months, and it looks like they wont last much longer. They seem to be wearing extremely quickly. My next purchase may mean spending a bit more to get a bit more quality.

Fitted to Shimano Sora

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
After 2000miles it was time to change my rear brake pads. These were the closest replacement I could find, bonus that they were one of the cheapest on the market.
Fitting was straight forward enough however it may involve adjusting the the brake cable.

These were easy to fit and seem to work fine. Haven't had time to judge their durability yet.

Pretty good

Posted03 January 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
I was hoping when changing my brake pads from the original ones, the Aztecs would be far better but it seems not. I do use the bike to commute so I'm on and off the brakes a lot. The array of spacers do help when fitting though

i'm by no means an expert, but for me these brakepads do their job and they are extremely easy and quick to fix. only slight visual downside is that they metal parts are quite long and stick out a bit.

good cheap brake blocks

Posted11 March 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: Unattractive
excellent value, good braking but not so nice to look at as the Ultegra ones they replaced. But fraction of the cost and it's only on the winter bike!
