    All the friction material came off one of my rear brake pads today. It had been in for nearly 2 years and done 20000 miles but there was plenty of meat (5mm or so) left on it. It was an EBC kevlar pad. Has anyone else experienced this? What can cause it to happen?

    Just received my Alaska Butt Pad, exactly 10 days after ordering it (Nice one Barb). Looks lovely, but I can't try it out till my birthday, :-( as it is meant to be a present. :-) Its a very nice looking bit of sheep coat with a strap and two click connectors. The medium fits the riders...

    I was going to change the brake pads on my bike, and while I was at it replace the keeper pins and circlips. Does anyone know where I can get replacement pins without buying a complete calliper repair kit ? (motorworks)
