This 4 piston powerhouse will give you super quick reaction times, but that does also come with a price; Pad wear! I had stock Pads with my Trek Remedy 9.7 2019 bike and that was purchased last September. As i was taking apart a few things on my bike for the regular maintenance that i do i discovered that my
pads where completely bald but still very much working ( no damage to rotors ). In 3 months ( quite a bit of useage) my pads where completely bald, now im not sure of the brand of the stock pads but im just going to put it under the assumption that there were not of any value, which is quite the shame as the bike wasn't cheap.
