Can u stop my Aztec F1 pads from squealing like little pigs?Bikeman

Hello all,

OK I bought a set of those red brake pads from deltacycle. I have campy record brakes, and a Kestrel carbon fiber frame, just so you know. I set the toe-in so that the front of the pads touch the rim before the rear, by about 1 or 2mm. Forgot to scuff them a bit before use. However, normally I have squeal-free brakes, and I have pretty much dissassembled every part of the bicycle without any probs, so this has me stumped. Do all red-compund brake pads squeal like this?!

All help appreciated.
Thanks a million.

Trial and error: Adjust toe-in, from as described by you here through parallel to rim and even to reverse toe-in, and find out what happens. (I had to reverse toe a set of v-brakes for a mountain bike to stop "riding with the pigs".)
