    These brake pads were a great addition to my bike. They are much better than the stock pads which came on the bike. I will add them to my other bikes.

          Comments about Aztec Ultra V brake Pads:

          Good product, but there's an important spec missing, as these long pads would fit on my rear wheel, but not on my front:
          The pad extends 30mm forward of the centerline of the bolt, and the pad extends 42mm aft of the bolt centerline.

          Also, the clever design has one spherical surface on each of four washers per pad. The two concave washers are about 2-3mm different in thickness, allowing an additional adjustment for caliper to rim distance.

            Look very nice on my Cannondale Quick 3 hybrid. Well built and light. Stopping power feels just about the same as with my stock pads though. Not quite an improvement in performance.

              I got these as an upgrade for my latest build-up because they looked great and appeared to be high quality. They work fine only noticed that they sqeel when braking hard. Also the toe in adjustment is tricky because of the extra length as compared to stock pads.

                Comments about Aztec Ultra V brake Pads:

                These made a very good upgrade for stock pads. They are longer with more contact surface and look great too. You need to make sure to have the proper toe in adjusted like it shows in the instructions as they will squeel if not. I had to add an additional washer behind the nut as it would bottom out before they were secure. Very happy with this set.

                  I put these on my 1972 Raleigh Grand Prix Road Bike. They are very adjustable to many different angles and even tight spots.The included hardware allows you to adjust toe in, toe out, and camber, as well as being closer to or further away from the rim. They work fantastic and the bike now literally stops on a dime. Plus the color looks great with the Bronze green metallic paint on my ride !I got mine on sale but would buy them even at the regular price. Thank you Nashbar!

                    Comments about Aztec Ultra V brake Pads:

                    We used these on a Cannondale tandem that still had the original Shimano pads. I can't guarantee the performance of these versus new Shimanos, but against our old pads these are a great step up.
                    The light copper color (best I can describe it) won't match every paint scheme but they look great with our forest green bike.Good quality hardware, easy install.

                    Just installed these on a hardtail Giant, they are an instant upgrade from the stock pads. I have not ridden off road yet, but the increase in stopping power is substantial. Anyone still using rim brakes should grab these, you won't be disappointed. Only one color which didn't match, but no one's really going to notice anyway.

                      I ride my bike to school every day. Putting these brake pads on my bike drastically reduced my stopping distance.

                        These were for replacement of stock Shimano pads on a Cannondale hard tale. They provide a more powerful and better brake feel, more control, a very worthy upgrade. Oh, and they look sharp too.
