Yup. Mee too. Asked in a local shop yesterday. He told 100rs and didn't look bad. Today will give a try. The decathlon one I have now is 499 I guess. Much of a waste now.
In 3 months: Second-hand Hero Hawk -> Second-hand Hero Ranger DTB -> Second-hand Fomas roadking -> New Rockrider 5.0 finally.

Tektro Novella Disc brakes sucks!! Maybe thats what happens when you use very basic set of disc brakes. Of late the disc brakes stopping power has been reduced.
I cleaned the pads and aligned and still is not satisfied. I think the normal V brakes are better.

after cleaning the pads, did you roughen it? Try rubbing the pad with sand paper..

Yes i had sanded it, Maybe mechanical disc brakes are not that efficient, Even the shimano disc of hybrid too is not up to the mark!

3200 kms and counting!!! That's my total kilometers on Scott.
I am unhappy with the disc brakes' efficiency, the braking power is very less. Tried all gimmicks to correct it. I really felt it when i used Mr AA's RR. The V brake felt so good.
Maybe I should try some organic pads for better braking.
I am not at all riding these days, the reason being heavy thunder and rain in the evenings. Needs strong motivation to get up and ride in the morning.

For the time being no plans to change, the reason being, apart from the tektro on my bike, I find the shimano on hybrid too is not upto the mark compared to a V.
Before taking the plunge, i will change the pad and see. Read about organic pads which have better stopping power.

Finally my updates on this thread is coming to an end.
I sold my Scott Aspect 670, as I had to move abroad.
I thought of carrying the cycle but I got a good deal and sold the cycle.
So my good times with Scott has ended.
