Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Not Bad...
Have ridden approx 800 miles, xc road, very mild d/h, found that yes they needed readjustments, a 5 sec jobbie, but do stop much better then v brakes. These pads wore out very quickly in extremely harsh conditions, survived summer ok, though may need replacing after about 500 miles!! For the price, an excellent pad and system!

This is a very good product and the braking power is good for cable brakes although i think Avid could have inproved the life of these pads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Not long lasting
Good stoppers and very easy to adjust. When out on a ride quick tool free adjustments can be made in seconds. However I do not feel that they last long. The contact material is thin (as it needs to get into the caliper gap) and as such despite appearing to have lots of wear left they need replacing a lot sooner than I would have liked. I have done 700 miles on mine which is only 6 months with commuting and leisure riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent XC brakes
I do a fair bit of XC riding in Scotland, and I've got BB5s with these pads on the singlespeed. They're excellent, totally reliable, easily adjustable and cheap. Always use Avid cables (which CRC also have dead cheap) and I have no issues at all with this kit. The Hope Monos on the other bike are fine, but not worth the extra if you're on most UK trails.
