No, but I prefer to used it
Is it as bad as the article made it to be? I just don't want to be in shock this weekend when I pick it up and find how long it takes to brake.After about 500 miles my front brake seams to have finally worn in. I'm finally able to comfortably two finger the brake. But I think once I wear the stock ones down I will try the middle of the road option and see how they fare.
