I got back into cycling a little while ago; I'm still way heavier than I want to be (6'2", 255bs) - but at least I'm riding every day and starting to head in the right direction.
Quick question, though: I seem to burn through brake pads on my bike (a tourer). About every 600 miles they are completely spent and need changing.
Is this usual wear, or is it reasonable to expect given how heavy I am?
I just changed the latest ones this week The guy at my local bike shop fitted some new ones for me - I think they are Kool Stop.
No big deal, but I was wondering if the wear is usual/to be expected, or maybe there is something wrong with the way the bike is set-up or my riding style?
