Do not ride Surrey, that's for if you want to wear out your brake pads, put new ones in, and wear the new set well and truly in
My riding is more up and down than the damn area I live in! And the tart's knickers who lives next door - Combined!  :o

Just ride - don't worry about it as they'll bed in soon enough.  Basically you need to take the surface off the new pad and to do that just brake hard downhill a few times

Having just seen your post on Bikeradar, is that really your budget for a FS bike despite what others have said on here.... should have got that 2nd hand Specialized, that went for pretty much the same amount on ebay but it cost twice that originally so much higher spec  Undecided
