It's a Specialized CrossTrail.. the original brakes are Trekto Draco, so I assume the pads would also be those.. which are higher end if I'm right? And yeah.. I didn't specify anything, and they cost me about 20 bucks.. but I don't know what brand they are :/

the pads ARE like the look in the picture though, one being a lot closer to the rotor than the other one.

it's a CrossTrail Sport Disk, so it is hydraulic brakes :/ I'm a bit scared of letting air in to the system and then the pistons not retracting, and having bleed it, which I don't know how to do :(

comment Legal to ride bikes on sidewalks in Seattle?
And just as a little extra: its up to you to go in the road, in the bike lane or in the side walk, but you have to adjust to each. (ie if in the road/bike lane, you can cross if green light/stop in red, if in the sidewalk, you'd have to get a walk sign). I'm not exactly sure where it is specified, but I just took the WA driver license test so its fairly fresh in my mind

comment List of accessories and training for commuting
Just would like to emphasize on travelling the routes beforehand, on a weekend or so. While biking you might need to take different routes (no highway) and things might get a little tricky sometimes (how did I ended up here..?) :P also you there could be some long hill thats tough and will take longer to travel than you expected and such
