For most of my trials life I've been running discs front and rear. I've had Hopes, Echos, Maguras, BB7s, TRP Spykes and Revers. I really liked the trialtech compound when i could get it, but mostly I've been running stock Magura pads for years now. My next bike has TRPs front and rear so finally I have a brake with pads made by all the serious manufacturers, except trialtech. Does anyone have trials experience with Galfer, Kool Stop, Swiss Stop, Clark or Shimano pads? The Shimano pads are by far the cheapest, but does anyone have a review for any of the others? I'll start doing my own tests; slowly.
