Aztec F1 pads. Super light, great stopping compound. I have a set that came on my new brakes.. they are sweet. You can get them with Ti hardware or Stainless. The pads are not replaceable though, so when they wear out, you replace the whole thing (like you used to do prior to Shimano cartrige pads) I have a set with the Ti hardware and when it wears out I will get the stainless and reuse the Ti bolts.

What kind of mileage do you expect to get out of those pads..

I replace my pads every year. I live in Florida and average 9000 miles a year. Most of my riding is flat and open roads. I don't do much heavy braking. I don't race anymore. And I don't have to descend any hills, because there aren't any in my area. I also don't tend to ride much in the rain, so wet road grit isn't much of a factor either.

I would get the Kool-Stop pads and cartridge pad holders, the "Shimano" version should work fine. Kool-Stop sells a package that has the pad holders, a pair of dual-compound pads, and a pair of salmon replacement pads. The advantage to the holders over the regular Shimano holders is that they have spherical washers to allow for toe-in correction.

Check out and look under the brake pad listings.
