I'm in need of new brake pads for my bike. It's old, has Exage 300EX brake calipers. I'm wondering if i can put 105 holders and pads. I know of the benefits of holder-vs-non holder pads from my XT 'V' Brakes on my MTB. Anyone know of possible problems the switch will uncover?

I installed Ultegra cartridge pads on a friends old Klein equipped with old style 600 sidepulls. The combined pad and holder were slightly thinner than the old brake pads but once adjusted the brakes worked fine. If I remember correctly (it's been a long time since I worked in a shop) the Exage brakes were sidepulls with a very similar (if not exact) design to the old 600 sidepulls.

Hope this helps
