My bike has 17000 miles. I've had it the past 4000 miles and I'm guessing the brake pads have never been changed. I've seen front brake pads anywhere from $5.00 - $50.00. I'm not hard on my bike. How do I know what to buy?

Are the pads worn to the bottom of the wear lines? Mine are still original with lots of wear left in them. And a wee bit more miles on it than yours.

Actually I have not looked at them that close. I was thinking that I had read that they need replaced about every 20,000 miles. I was simply looking online at parts tonight and was seeing all the different types and thought I should get them just to have on hand. I'll have to look for the wear marks on them.
Hopefully I have lots of miles to go on them yet. :D
