Hi - I've just bought a secondhand bike with Sram Rival groupset, it came with Carbon wheels and the appropriate brake pads. I've changed to aluminium rims and need to change the pads, but I can't seem to find any pads that state that they work with Sram. Can I just buy any shimano pads? I'm looking at Aztec, BBB etc.

Many thanks

    Yes Shimano and SRAM have the same inserts. Spend a few quid more on some green Swissstop pads as opposed to aztec etc, you can normally find a set for around £20 and they're well worth it.

    Yup re Shimano fitting SRAM all ok.

    KMC salmon/black are better than Swisssssssssssssssssssssstop green and half the price.

    Or did someone say bargain bucket Clarks for a fiver at CRC?
