    Upgrading tektro 10

    Hi, I am looking at a set of used tektro 10 brake calipers, and I know they have horrible reviews on mtbr.com, but was wondering if a simple pad upgrade would fix most problems. Anybody use them with upgraded pads and found that they're manageable? Or should I just cough up the money and get some bb7s?

    Can't make a turd better by putting nail polish on it, because then it will just be a turd with nail polish on it.

    Just get some bb7's.
