How often should I replace my mechanical disc brake pads? I ride about 100-150 mi per week, dropping about 3-5000K vertical. mostly road and graded trails. I very seldom come to abrupt stops, but I brake often. Are there any indications that the pads may be wearing thin? what would you estimate for a replacement period? 1500 mi? 3000?

Too many variables involved here. Pull the wheel, and take a close look at the pads. Note that organic pads wear more quickly than semi-metallic pads. FWIW, I managed to get ~3000 miles out of Avid organics.
