    Whats the deal with V pads when you run a grind? Some of yous guys say you need a trials-specific pad, some say you can run (some?) standard MTB pads. Which is it?

    When I ran black or red maggie pads with a grind, they wore down to nothing in a week and they didn't stop me at all. I would think with Vs it would be the same story.
