    When do I need to change my pads?

    Quick question,


    I've been riding my Kona Cinder Cone pretty regularly for about a year now, it's my first foray into hydraulic disk breaks (Hayes Nines), and I have no idea when to change the pads or what to look for to know if they need to be changed.
    thanks!
    Jon

    Once they stop working, or you start to notice a large difference in stopping power, get new pads. You can also take them off and look at them to see how much pad is left.
