So today i finally bought my bike...2005 Ironhorse Warrior Sport. before everyone starts to rip me apart, I figured i couldnt beat it for the price- $250. Its got the rock shox J1 fork (is that the same as a judy?), Tektro disk brakes, alivio shifters...it all seems to be pretty decent stuff. I pick it up tommorrow, im pretty excited.

i believe the j series is the same as the judy...
once again, congrats!

Now ive herad the tektro brakes are going to be noisy...then ive heard its easily fixable with new brake pads. correct? incorrect?

no, i dont think so...
i used to have tektro brakes on my old bike that got stolen, but that got stolen.
they were noisy when they were wet, but i think that all disc brakes are noisy when wet.

Well about your brakes, after the pads worn out, dont bother replacing the pads, do like me - recently my Shimano brake pads worned out so instead of replacing the pads, I straight away bought a '05 Avid Single Digit 7 and I can tell you that I was soo happy cause these brakes really make you feel that you are in total control.
