    Getting ready to change the pads due to me changing the rear rotor.
    I picked up a pair of sintered brake pads and I usually use the organic brake pads.
    I have done some reading on the difference between the two..
    Anyone have experience with the pads that can provide their experience with the type of pad?

    Sorry no experience with the two pads but I know I'm getting really tired of the brake dust on whatever I have and I was thanking about the Carbon-Kevlar (Organic).

    Sintered has more metal in them and are for a more aggressive type driving and are harder on rotors. Carbon are easier on rotors and are for the average driver, meaning not aggressive and fine for everyday driving but are dusty. Kevlar pads are ok for everyday driving and almost dustless, however if you are aggressively driving and heating the pads up they will wear very fast. The stopping performance is there in any of the types of pads, but the style of driving should dictate your pads.

    I'm running the Lyndall gold on my bikes and I'm happy with them. Next to no brake dust from them.

    "next to no brake dust" must be a relative statement. i've got golds on mine and the dust is still there. not as bad as the originals, but still there, nonetheless. but definitely not dis-satisfied with them.

    Huh, I thought organic pads are made of bread so birds will eat the dust
