|I have a stock Ultegra brake pads, and they don't inspire much confidence when I'm riding down the twisty stuff. Are there any pads that are worth upgrading to for use with non-ceramic rims (stock bontragers on 5200)?

|Or will KoolStop pads fit in the Ultegra cartridges?
I actually tried to call the company today, but everyone was at Interbike.

|or some such. Basically, no.
I believe they do different types (I guess Campy pads are different) but if you get the Dura-type then you wont have any trouble.

|I use the black Koolstops on Campy and have some for Shimano as well. They grab very well and are easier on the rims too.|

|I have Kool-Stops Blacks on my mountain bike and road bike. They are very quiet, modulate well and don't pick up grit that then eats your rims.|
|Thx all...Kool Stop black it is! (nm)||K_Zero|
