What ones do you use,& are the koolstop or swisstop worth the extra as they seem very expense?

    I use koolstop salmons. Yes, they are fairly expensive but I think they brake better, seem to wear quite slowly, wear your rims less (on the road, I am less convinced when actually racing) and can often fix mild juddering problems. For the extra few quid they seem worth it to me.

    As above, Salmons are good. Softer compound pads means slightly better stopping and less cable judder, although at the expensive of them wearing a little quicker.
  • I've used Reynold which I have found very good.
