I've never much paid attention. I've read that metallic last longer but eat up the rotor. I like my rotors so I'll change pads more. I'm not a performance rider so they all stop fine for me. Just my $.02, Dave

I have been using the organic kevlar pads sold by Sixity on Ebay with great success for the last 6 years.

It doesn't really matter what brand you use, as long as your rotors are reasonably smooth and within spec'.

That's minimum 4mm for regular brake rotors and minimum 9mm for Aspencade vented brake rotors.

They ought to last you about 20-40,000 miles, dependant on how heavy you are on them.

I personally do not know of a brand that you should avoid.
