If you want your disk brake pads to last a long time, I recommend using a spray lubricant on your cassette and chain. I used a farm/industrial lanolin based lube called "Fluid Film". I liked it because it had no petroleum solvents. However, the overspray found its way to the rear brake rotor, and now all my braking is on my front wheel. It's a good thing I live in very flat terrain. I really need to replace those rear brake pads.

I recommend that you don't worry about the life of the brake pads. Just replace when necessary.
