I looked at mine today, not much wear on my Mavic CXP22 after 2000 miles. I'm not very heavy on the brakes, either because of no hills in Chicago, or I'm just a little slow.
I did find one loose spoke and the pads show some wear.
Always good to check.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
