Just got a new set of pads on my Fisher 29er. It has Juicy 3s and I went back with the stock sintered pads. The old pads were nearly completely gone. The new pads however were TERRIBLE on the first 10 miles of a ride this past Sunday. About 10 miles in they started to bite a little better, but still no where near as well as the old pads that came off. Is there a trick to breaking in new brake pads? I'm pulling the rear lever as hard as I can with an index finger and can still barely lock up the rear tire.
With poor braking, some sections of Dawson Forest were sketch Sunday to say the least!
