    Fitted a new set of replacement Aztec brake pads to my bike yesterday. They recommended 10 minutes
    bedding in time. I was pushed for time last night and decided to combine this with my 30 mile round
    trip to work. BAD IDEA! The wheels were so stiff to turn the extra effort nearly killed me !

    Guenuine Magura pads have worked fine in the past

    Anyone else had problems like this?

    Stiff to turn? When they say you should bed them in they don't mean that the pads should be
    rubbing the rotor when you are not braking. Did you push the pistons back into the caliper before
    replacing the pads?
