Default Ebay Brake Pads

Have any of you bought the cheap full set of brake pads from ebay. Comes with both sets for the front and one set for the back. It is roughly 30 bucks for the complete set and comes from hong kong?
Seems a little to cheap to be decent pads but wanted some advice.

Thanks

That seems way too cheap man. I wouldn't go with them. Brakes are not something you want to cheap out on

Certain items on my bike I would not skimp on - tires and brakes. They might be fine, but I feel better knowing they are high quality from a manufacturer I trust.

Guys on the Blackbird forum recommend the Sixity pads. Made in the USA, supposed to be exactly like the EBC HH pads but half the price. I just installed a set but haven't finished bleeding the damned linked brakes yet.

I wouldnt cheap out on pads... Granted I am using the ebay knock off Arashi rotors $150 for the pair... I have them matched up to Goodridge SS lines and Vesrah RJL pads. Works good enough for me!

Thanks for all the input. I will just put some better quality. I am a aggressive rider so I am very hard on my brakes.

Give the Vesrah RJL pads a try...

Little pricey but well worth it, especially since you said your an aggressive rider
