I have an 8 that needed brake pads and I went to a bicycle shop and got disc brake pads that were about the correct size. I JB welded the pad to the carrier on the 8 and they seem to work fine but I'm not sure on how durable the JBweld will be. Given that the brake disc is geared up from the wheel the torque required to stop it shouldn't be as large as at the wheel. i just went to a bike shop and asked to see some replacement disc pads. I picked the ones that were about the same size as the 8 OE pads.

I didn't mean the rubber pads that rub on the rim but the replacement disc pads for the disc brakes that they have on modern bicycles.

Good idea Brian. Please let us know how they work out for you, once

you're up and running.

My MF7H needs pads also, and that looks like a good fix.

 

But I'd really rather know when Brian is up and stopping.
