5 of 5 Made for a Vespa Grande!! May 30, 2016
taco eater : Ninja from New York, NY  
If you have a Vespa Grande/Bravo/Ciao with a bad rear brake pad, look no further. This IS the pad you want. The tension spring isn’t fun to get on and off. After getting the spring on the rear brake pad has never stopped the bike so quickly. Zero modification to either the trans/hub and/or the brake pad itself, it simply falls into place.

5 of 5 Badass for one Pad!!! August 4, 2013
taco eater : big nose from seattle, wa  
This brake pad works so well that one time going down a steep hill going 45 mph I hit a pot hole and caused the back brake to engage and lock up on its own... resulting in a accidental 50ft long rear wheel skid. I can still remember the noise of the skid scaring the crap out of this woman and her daughter who were walking nearby lol

5 of 5 Not Too Shabby January 19, 2013
taco eater : Sean Lynch from Tucson, AZ  
Pad face is 15mm wide, compared to 11mm on an original pad. That's about 36% more material to slow your roll with! Didn't fit right on to the brake pin; not a real issue though. Just dressed the pivot hole with an 8mm drill bit and it works perfect now.

4 of 5 too big May 29, 2011
taco eater : heywood jablome from pa  
too much pad material.  i had to remove the little washer spacer type thing, and it still doesnt fit right.  also wider than stock, which is a good thing.

really nice shoe though...
