But, the Shimanos are worth wearing out first, as they are decent.
This has been my experience, too. Keep the original pads around as spares, since you've already ordered the new ones, but I think you'll notice a big difference. set them up carefully, of course.
BTW, do you mean you ordered them online? You'll pay seven bucks shipping for something that would have cost maybe two dollars more in a bike shop, and you'd already have them on the bike?
