johngchrist's Bio

I have been in SLC Utah for around 9 years and have been at backcountry.com the entire time. I like to do everything and know a lot about gear.

When I'm not outside, you can FIND ME IN THE BACKCOUNTRY.COM RETAIL STORE!!!

I just love it there. So many things and so many things of each thing.

2607 S. 3200 W., in Salt Lake City.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Organic/semi-metallic/resin pads are softer and tend to be quieter. They offer more initial bite, but fade faster than metallic pads on longer descents. Do not use organic/semi-metallic/resin pads in wet conditions.

Metallic/sintered pads last longer, handle heat better, and resist fade better under heavier braking loads, making them good for downhill. In wet conditions, metallic pads are a must.

This tool is a little messy and you get cuttings everywhere when you use a hacksaw. Stuff you don't wont mingling with your sanctions and seals. It does do a great job except for the mess and and is very will made.

I have to agree with Scott on using pipe cutters
http://www.backcountry.com/birzman-tubing-cutter is a great tool

you need to own this hack saw. Super sturdy , it's what we use here in the shop at backcountry.com Get some extra blades a well and keep them new so this saw cut's like butter.

it's nice to have one of these on the trail, Ive needed to loan mine out to others who have bunged up theirs pumping up their tire and being a little too rough.

You can also steel them from old tubes as well as they are universal and save some dollars. I feel for $3 it may be over priced by $2 but I would pay $20 if I needed one and didn't have one on the trail.
