No , was just wondering as not done it before and want to keep on top of it this time around. I also just want to make sure theres no air in them as i didnt fit them.
every other month - looking at some goodridge hoses as I'm sure this would make a difference!
Never, but i hardly ever need to change my pads either, is this 'cos...

a - I ride too slow
b - I weigh nothing
c - I've been lucky

I've got Shimano (basic stock ones), Hope Mono Minis and Hayes Strokers. I did do a particularly filthy ride that ate my pads in a matter of miles once, damn Scottish grit. I think it was the ride that I posted a pic of me looking bedraggled with a sodden arse.  
Keep it foolish...
