    Brake pads and chain

    What type of front pads are people using? And drive chains?
    Which are good and which to avoid? Thanks

    Ferodo HH pads front and rear.
    Trofeo TRB Super Heavy Duty Gold X-Ring Chain. No issues with either of them . 10k miles on the chain so far very little adjustment

    As soon as you start having to adjust it regularly, have a look at the front sprocket. I expect you'll see the teeth starting to 'hook'. It's the hook that causes premature chain wear. If you swap the sprocket to a new one the need for adjustment will reduce.
    I find that I go though two fronts for every rear and chain.
    The chain/sprocket life will also increase if you can keep it lubricated at the worst times - rain and dust.
