|My are a bit overdue and none of the shops carry the cartridge pad replacements. I have heard that Koolstops work well. can anyone hook me up with some links for good deals on pads?|

|Cures all ills. Don't know where the "deals" are (c'mon, we're talking about a $9 item here, that's like asking what the best deal out there on cables is), but I buy mine from Excel Sports if the LBS is out of 'em.
Black = Normal
Red/Salmon = Wet
Personally I use the red ones year-round with no issues whatsoever. This after a replacement set of Dura Ace pads really chewed up my rims.
Hope this helps

|I use those and they last long and work well in wet/dry. Stronger then Shimano. BTW my LBS charges 10$/set|| |
