Brake swap completed, worn pins
I installed my EB brakes today, pulling the old ones out I discovered I could have gone a while longer without changing them. I was unable to see the wear indicators when on the bike, but once out they were easy to see, and still some life left, but since I had them out I decided to swap them anyways. 24,000 km's on the old ones. How long do they usually last?
The pins that hold them in place were pretty scored, is this an item that is frequently replaced? I haven't seen anyone mention about them before.
Watching a youtube vid on replacing pads, the guy put copper grease on the pins as well as on the bolts holding the caliper to the bike. I understand putting it on the pins, since they are kind of a moving part in there (brake pads jostle on it) but wouldn't it make more sense to put loctite on the bolts to the bike?
