Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent brakes for a great price Anyone who gives these brakes a bad review isn't being rational. These brakes are $34 for a front and rear set with rotors ... dirt cheap. They are easy to setup and provide more than enough performance for the price. I have them mounted on my SS CX Commuter bike. They work just great. Tons of stopping power for the road and just enough for when I go off road on hard pack flats. If you are buying these for your trail bike get something better, but if you have a sensible application these things are just right. They are not perfect. These things are real heavy and have a bulky ugly appearance. My ride is white so the bulky ugliness is mitigated by the fact that the brakes blend in. If you bike isn't white they may stick out in a bad way. 10 April 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good price. Awesome work. 180mm for front - not for extreme. 13 May 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Avis mitigé, qualité de fabrication limite Commandé deux ensembles arrières en 180mm plus des adaptateurs Clarks au détail (anodisés) pour passer un ensemble à l'avant. Impossible de monter les deux kits !! Avec l'adaptateur d'origine à l'arrière, le disque touche au fond de l'étrier avant que l'axe de roue soit engagé dans les pattes de cadre ! Le disque est correct et de bonne fabrication, rectifié sur toute sa surface et léger (130g env. en 180mm). Le problème semble venir uniquement des adaptateurs d'origine, ils ne correspondent... à rien ! Un non-sens de process industriel. Pas moyen de passer les adaptateurs d'origine à l'avant ou en 160mm, ils ne correspondent à aucun standard sur aucune position. J'essaye donc les adaptateurs Clarks achetés au détail. Même problème à l'avant : avec un spécifique en 180mm pour l'avant et un kit frein CMD8, pas moyen d'enfiler la roue dans les pattes de fourche, à moins d'intercaler des rondelles entre adaptateur et étrier ; la grande classe quoi, autant se le fabriquer à la main... Reste d'ailleurs que la qualité de fabrication est très faible : les faces d'appui des étriers ne sont pas planes, pas usinées... l'étrier se serre donc en travers du disque en partie. Si vous avez déjà des adaptateurs qui trainent, vu le prix des freins... Sinon, foncez sur de la VRAIE marque (j'ai des Avid bb5, j'en rachèterai volontiers vu cette mésaventure). Dernière info : contrairement au descriptif, les kits sont livrés avec des plaquettes, les vis de disque, la notice, bref tout ce qu'il faut, complets. Les étriers sont massifs visuellement,, le serrage en position de l'arrêt de gaine est un petit plus, l'ensemble est dur à actionner à la main et le sera autant à la manette, sans possibilité de réglage du ressort des ballbearings. Complets, seul point positif... J'ai retourné les produits vu le non-contrôle qualité avant commercialisation ; dans le doute... 05 April 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by AVOID THIS PRODUCT AT ALL COSTS! I bought 1pc of these to replace my faulted rear Hayes 9 on my commuting bike 'cause I did not want to spend money on it. What a mistake! From the beginning the braking power was barely noticable despite huge effort at the lever. ( I have use Shimano&Tektro mechanical before so I know how mechanical disc should perform.) After the braking action there is consistent problem that the brake lever would't returnn the last 5-10mm in to its original position. It does but after a while. I have changed the cable 3 times in last 6 months I owe the brake but with no positive result. The recent cable is top qualit- low friction one that cost more than the caliper did. The problem seems to be caused by unsufficient strenght of the spring in the caliper. The major problem with the product is somewhere else: the adjustable cylinder on the inner side of the wheel - opposite to the "push" cylinder - DOES NOT STAY IN THE DESIRED POSITION - as result after each few miles ride it will screw itself out of the caliper in to a greater distance from the disc causing the braking power become non- existent and it require re-adjustment (every 5-7miles or after each short ride) to keep at least some braking performance. Another superb design feature of the product is the way the end of the cable is fixed at the caliper arm - if it get loose you need an allien key + spanner to tight it up - very clever solution. Also - the magnet that holds the pads in their place has (once) atracted a piece of metal debris from the road and that piece got stuck in the caliper completely blocking its movement - braking power - but this can be just a bad luck. Neverthless, overally I can say this is the WORST BIKING PRODUCT I HAVE EVER BUY IN THE LAST 25 YEARS. IT IS NOT ONLY BAD PRODUCT BUT IT IS ALSO VERY DANGEROUS - IN MOST SITUATION YOU WILL BE BETTER WITH NO BRAKES AT ALL THEN USE CMD-8 - AT LEAST YOU WILL KNOW YOU HAVE NO BRAKES!!! 14 February 2013

Can you link me the compatible brake pads?

I cannot find brake pads for the CMD-8 on your homepage. They seem to be very similar to the CMD-6 models but I cannot find any compatibility chart.

We do not have the CMD-8 pads available at this time.

However the Clarks Part number is VX849C; which should help you source the correct part.
