  1. tw200 roaduse...had a new paid of break pads put on at 6000km and now a year later at 14000kms thy are going again!!!


  2. depends on the compound, eg race pads wear out much quicker than general use street pads.
    6-7k seems a tad short to me, though it also depends on your riding style
  3. 8k is well within the bounds of normality.
