|Brake pads--alternative to kool stop or shimano?||took|
Jul 28, 2003 12:17 PM
|I switched from shimano pads to kool-stop about a year ago and have been happy with the switch, until i got a new wheelset w/ velocity aerohead rims and now i've rund accross a problem: the kool-stops are too wide to fit within the braking surface on the rim. It goes over the braking surface by a mm or so. The shimano pads fit fine, but in my experience they tend to be rough on the rim.
Anyone tried anything else that works? Ritcheys?

|KoolStop pads are the same width as Shimano pads for the Shimano brakes I'm familiar with. Are you sure you have the correct KoolStop pads?|

|i guess i mean height (measurement from top to bottom), not width (side to side). the width is fine, since they are made specifically for ultegra/DA. the height however, is greater than the braking surface provided on my rims, so there's some overlap onto the rest of the rim (bad news).|| |
