Re: 2009 marin bobcat trail brakes
You can remove your pads and take them to your local bike shop for replacement. If you wish, it's easy enough to cross-reference them online and order them as well. Besides the pads, check for leaks. Check your reservoir fluid level. If you have a leak and unsure on repair procedures, just have the bike shop perform it because it requires tools that most of us do not have readily available. As for brake pad brands, I've had success with both Aztec and Jagwire for my BB7's and Shimanos.
