Internal disc pads

Recommended Posts

Ok, I think I figured out what’s up with my rapid loss of brake lever. After 400 miles on a hub/brake rebuild it looks like The grub screw for the static pad is working it’s way thru the back of the steel backing plate, not the compound that rides against the rotor. Am I missing something here or maybe the steel backing to soft, or the screw to rounded off.

I cant remember where I got this set of pads, but i have a new set of Newfren ones here to try instead. Also get a new adjusting screw. 

the internal disc works really well when adjusted up properly.

Any body else running into this sort of black magic?

I’ve never had that problem with Newfren pads and would personally recommend them over most other pads currently available. Just make sure you file down the oversized backing discs. 

If you can find them, my first preference would NOS Innocenti/OEM pads. I recently fitted some to a front end overhaul and the difference was immediately noticeable.
