The block came with the pads so I'm not sure. If I had to guess I'd say it is around 220ish

Does the Plastic Dip chip like Powder coating/paint?

Cleanning the chain lube off, how's that go?

Last question,>>> ? $...?

Thanks James

Its not a tough as powder coat. It is designed to cover like paint but peel off when you're tired of it. It's like rubberized coating.

No issue with the chain lube because I don't over use it. I don't know if brake clean will cut through it or not. Its a soft coating so I think solvents would aid in it removal. It did fine with simple green.

It was cheap. I think something like $7 a can. I used less then one can. The expensive part was the tape.
