    i was wondering if some people could post pics of there ground rim and what pad there using. im trying to find what pad to use with a certain grind. ive tried a fairly harsh grand and rock trial pad. and ive tried a pretty mild grind with standard magura pads. and now im using v's with richie pads and a mild grind. and i havnt liked any of the three. so i just wanted to see some peoples grind and what pad there using, and how much they like the setup.

    thanks.

    ground dx32 with red heatsink: lovin' it
    smooth dx32 with coust: love it when it's dry
    ground dx32 with coust: must be a dream brake

    about the grind, it's a medium grind:

    there was a thread where someone asked for pics of ground rim. find it.

    btw, are you from england?
    (i'm curious, because they write usually there=their=they're)

    The spanish fly pads that I stole from 'dang!' work well with a medium grind.

    what rim are you using?

    i've found the harder rims (eg Echo, Zhi) work really well with soft pads.. like Plazmatic, and zoo

    i've found softer rims (Try-all) work good with harder pads.. like Spanish Fly, Koxx bloxx and the older Plaz pads

    i use a medium grind. as in, harder than the one in the pic above

    I really like that v-brake idea, running them upside down, and mounting the spring on the booster....hmmm

    Yeah they are not as hard as a new Echo. My grind is just starting to feel smooth on my DX, but my V brakes still work awesome. I only grind 2 times a year and do a decent amount of riding.

    That's only a bolt. One side is M6, other side is M5, which goes to the frame.
    Then you have to put on a cut V-brake "mount" to the bolt.

    (mobile phone pics...)

    This is my best brake setup so far. And it has been working for months without problems.
    Only one problem, that it needs a frame with integrated booster.
