Hey all,

!st, how can you tell if you need new pads. I have stopping power, but when I release there is a constant rubbing on the rear. After a hard descent I get the same on the front.

With the rear if I had my pedals at 3 and 9 the sound would be really loud. If I dropped my left side pedal to the bottom the rubbing would almost go away.???

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

What brakes are you running?
Usually if you see only the backing plate to the padsthen you need to replace them:) You should be able to see braking material on the pads.
But the thing your describing isn't much to do with the pads themselves.
