Welcome to the Basic Bike Co
We are a Vancouver based company that specializes in affordable aftermarket brake pads, brake bleed kits and more. Shop with confidence. All of our products are tested on the North Shore by some of the fastest local Enduro and DH racers.
I haven’t tried the ‘Bike Park’ compound yet, but the “Race” compound is great so I bought a couple of sets of these to try
Better than the brand specific pads.
They are awesome.
Pads have been great and provide stopping power. Delivery was fast!
Worked perfectly and great value
Fast delivery and smart packaging. Easy install. They have some meaty pads. I rinsed them first and rubbed them together until they felt tacky pre-install. bedded in pretty quickly with god stopping power. I cant speak to durability yet as I only have a couple rides into them.,
Reasonable prices and quick shipping
2020 Deore 4 Pistons - Have put about 2 weeks onto these now (and also the matching 2017 Deore 2 pistons), all the bite you would want from a metallic Shimano pad at about half of the price. Started to get a little squawky only at the tail end of a few massive descents. Will buy again. Curious to try the race version. Shipping took about 4 days within BC.

In my opinion, these pads could even be more power than the original Shimano pads. I took about 5 minutes to break them in and man... they bite!!
Excellent stopping power and lifespan. Can’t tell the difference between sram pads and basic bike co pads!
Great price , easy to install and perform awesome
Extremely happy with these pads. No to little fade on these on long descents, no noise yet- only dry rides. Will be back for more
Had a hard time finding the Shimano replacement at local bike shops so I purchased 2 pairs of these made In Taiwan pads. These pads are pretty much exactly the same as the originals, except at almost half the price. Fit perfectly, braking feels perfectly, installed easily. Highly recommended. Like icing on the cake, the service and communication from the Basic Bike Co is super! Thank you for providing this wonderful 3rd party options at such affordable price.
Was able to get a solid bleed with this kit! Syringe handles are smaller than the OE kit, but the cost savings make up for it
