Just installed a set of Armstrong disc pads in the front wheel.

Bought off Ebay, just over £10.

Older ones had glazed over, just been out to do a bit of bedding in.

Very good product and a very good price, highly recommended. Neutral

I have a 01 SW with 5000 miles on it, do the brake pads degrade over time?

I've always felt the bike was a bit 'grabby' on the brakes and was wondering if age had caused this or if it was always that way?

I didnt think that the front brake alone was that good personally.

So for the cost to replace i just swapped them.

Well worth it.

I think the problem is not that the front disc is grabby, but the tired fork springs are giving you a lot of dive when you brake? We shall see tomorrow m8...... Razz

I don't know if this is an approved solution or not, but if you take glazed pads and rub them on some roughened concrete, it usually takes the glaze off and exposes fresh braking material. It won't work on a smooth concrete surface, like a garage floor. Try the driveway.
