Brake pads that doesn't suck?(8 posts)

Brake pads that doesn't suck?K_Zero
Oct 14, 2003 3:55 PM
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)?

Thx,
K-Zero

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
