Hello,

I bought my brand new Shimano SLX Ice Tech brakes from www.evanscycles.com
After less then 100 km of riding, my brake pad broke off while driving. No abusing, no extreme downhill, no nothing, just regular XC rides.
Before the pad braking off, I felt my brake lever is dropping softer.
Brake pads are like new, and if I were driving down the trail, or in busy street, I could be hurt.
Here starts the issues:
Funny thing the same brake pad broke off, left rear brake pad.
Anybody else had similar issues with brake pads?
Here are some photos.

Evanscycles don't make the pads, or the brakes. I don't see why it's relevant that you bought them from there. Send an email to warranty@evanscycles.com

The Evanscycles have applied warranty and that part is now ok.
Other thing it to worry about it that problem happened on 2 bikes, on brand new brakes.
1st set of brakes was old 2 days, and other 2 months.
Same rear left brake pad fell off.
