5.0 out of 5 stars A big improvement on stock pads
Bought these as stock pads (Btwin) were useless in the wet. The Clarks pads made a huge difference in both wet and dry conditions. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Non stainless washers and pad holder bolts made of cheese! Very poor
I bought 4 sets of these to fit on 2 bikes solely for the fact that they are a holder and come with spare pads so on the face of it seemed excellent value for money.

The thinking was that when they were set up on the rims all I would have to do is replace the pads by removing the old ones and sliding the new ones in. This is where these FAIL in a major...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of pads., 1 Sep 2012

This review is from: Clarks Multi Compound Road Bike Caliper Brake Shoes - Black/Red/Grey/White, 5.5 cm (Sports)
I've just fitted these to the front and rear of my Dawes G300 onto Tektro calipers. Fitting was a piece of cake. However, they are a thicker assembly than a solid block pad so setting up took a little time as the tighter fit to wheel meant any slight imbalance or buckle in the rims caused them to rub. This was solved by adjusting a few spokes and truing up the wheels. First ride out, there was a noticeable increase in stopping power. The front brake squealed quite a lot at low speeds but that was fixed by cleaning the rim and pad faces with a spray brake cleaner and they are now quieter than my last pads. Overall, very pleased.

1.0 out of 5 stars Non stainless washers and pad holder bolts made of cheese! Very poor, 4 Aug 2014
This review is from: Clarks Multi Compound Road Bike Caliper Brake Shoes - Black/Red/Grey/White, 5.5 cm (Sports)
I bought 4 sets of these to fit on 2 bikes solely for the fact that they are a holder and come with spare pads so on the face of it seemed excellent value for money.

The thinking was that when they were set up on the rims all I would have to do is replace the pads by removing the old ones and sliding the new ones in. This is where these FAIL in a major way!

The Allen bolts that they have used have seized up in mine and they are also made of cheese. I have just removed the whole cartridge, sprayed penetrating oil on the bolts - put the Allen key in and just rounded off the head. Absolutely useless!

Also the washers that they use are not made of stainless steel so will rust - unless you dry them every time the bike gets wet.

It's a shame as the holders look good and the pads are pretty decent - but actually expensive if a one use only. Going straight in the bin but have some 4 full sets of spare pads if anyone wants them lol!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good brakes. Good spares, 1 Aug 2014
This review is from: Clarks Multi Compound Road Bike Caliper Brake Shoes - Black/Red/Grey/White, 5.5 cm (Sports)
Good brakes. Good spares. Good postage. Only downside being that it was difficult to get the WHOLE brake block to hit the rim. As the black part of the brake pad has a little "flick" or a "bump" that hits the rim before the rest of the brakes.

As for noise? Well...As of recently, it is quite noisy. Maybe its because they are new. Bit of debris of the rim caused by rain. Wasn't the most quiet thing i've ever used. But probably because they are new. They are beautifully good looking and scarily sharp, rear wheel locks up easily as anything.

This should come with a new rear Tyre IMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good alround braking with Clarks Multi compound Road bike shoes, 25 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clarks Multi Compound Road Bike Caliper Brake Shoes - Black/Red/Grey/White, 5.5 cm (Sports)
Great pads changed my shimano pads for these because shimano pads were getting ripped by all the debris that gets thrown up when its raining in turn this was scoring the rims.
These pads still have the same stopping power as shimano but clear the debris better due to the design of the pad.

Recommended good buy
