I go through the ritual of bedding the pads to avoid green fade. Could
be some new pad materials don't require this. But what the heck, it is
easy enough, takes very little time and besides I am always curious to
go out and get the feel of new brakes after any tweak/change.

I've read about the process of braking to nearly a stand still from increasing speeds, although the suggestion from the manufacturer is to simply avoid heavy braking for 300 miles.  It's my first brake job and would appreciate any seasoned wisdom from the list.
