brake pads

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The pads have to fit the calipers. I would use the same pads in pairs on the front and back but don't think there'd be a problem having different pads on the front versus the rear.

I have different pairs on the front and back currently (have been meaning to fix that), but I would definitely use them in pairs.
