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.
Had the Shimano 4 piston resin pads in and swapped them for these. These pads BITE. They have amazing stopping power and are great value. No complaints at all.
I’m using these in an SLX caliper on the rear of a RadWagon 4 cargo bike. With me and my two kids on board, along with some groceries, total weight is around 400 pounds. The pads are great: quiet and powerful, with good modulation. (With a wheel skirt back there, it’s possible I’ll need to replace with finned Shimano pads in hot months, but with a 203mm rotor, heat dissipation might be good enough…)
I installed it on the bike and went to the trail to test. Leaves nothing to be desired for the original.
I like it !
I was hesitant to buy them the first time, but after trying them out I've kept buying them for the trail and dh bikes. Super happy with the pads every time. Also it takes a couple of days to be delivered to Fernie, BC
I couldn't figure out why the used Zee brake set with "known good" pads that I bought sucked so much, and were SO loud. I baked the pads, and got a week of decent (but not exceptional) power out of them, and then they got worse again. Swapped the new pads in and wiped down the rotors, and the difference was immediately apparent. Bedded them in very briefly, and went for a ride. 10 or 15 minutes of riding bedded them in the rest of the way, and wow, what a difference. FINALLY, the power I was expecting from these brakes! (Nice and quiet, too, though I haven't gotten them super hot yet.)
Great brake pads. Fit great, work well
I used to buy cheapo knock-off pads thinking they were all the same, until I gave Basic Bike Co's a try. I didn't realize I was giving up so much brake power and initial bite, not to mention how quiet they run. Doesn't matter how good your brakes/calipers are, if your pads are low quality why even run codes? I have these on my fronts and the park pads on the rear. Never looking back. A+++.
I’ve replaced the SRAM pads with OEM but these Basic Bike Co. pads are a step above.
I also have tried the Shimano pads too.
I’ll be coming back for more for sure.
I ordered 2 sets of spare pads for my TRP EVO’s just to have them on hand. So I can comment on The Bike CO’s service but not on the pads themselves but I’m sure they’ll do the job just fine!
The pads showed up within a week and the company followed up with a survey asking for freed back. Any place that goes to this level definitely deserves a try in my books and it’s local 👍🏻
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
