In the 70's armstrong were the "go-to" brand for vehicle brakes and clutches. They were one of the best to buy. How things change huh !!!

I like the modulation from EBC HHs - on the front anyway - you could put a couple of wooden blocks in the back though  :001:

'Greenstuff' v/s 'Redtuff' v/s etc.  :002:
But, there are differences...
A story: I have a dual-sport bike (not Tri.) that's kind'a street-oriented w/dirt promise and, when first riding it off-road, I felt the rear brake was way too powerful (for my taste). Too aggressive, I felt -- if I want more brake?, I'll press harder...
So, I went shopping for a solution and picked the absolute cheapest / no-name brake pads I could find for replacements.
Voila / success -- great, non-skidding, rear brake.

Haha, :0461: I also have d/s bikes, last thing we want is keen brakes in the rough stuff. Some of the older ones had drum brakes, the oem linings would fall off the shoes, caused by riding through streams & not being rivetted on. That could lock up the wheel.
