- Cantilever brake pads?
Im supprised your rims dont need replacing! i had some of those on-one LX canti’s and they wore my rim down quicker than the pad did, replaced them with those 4ZA Froggleg copies. They are great, so much better control/power, no idea what pads they are but kool stop are supposed to be good.Posted 9 years agoSTATOMember
The thing i like about the frogglegs is the big chunky pad, compared to crappy v-brake ones on the others. The larger surface area of the v-pad just dosnt work with canti’s IMO, just dilutes the power. The newer frogglegs with road style pads look like a good compromise.
I got my 4ZA on e-bay, none there now but search for froggleg and there are loads of options, TRP are the same basically.Posted 9 years ago
I found some 4ZA’s here: http://www.bikeshop.uk.com/400/4ZA-CB2-Canti-levers.html?referrer=FrooglePosted 9 years agoGary_MMember
I use kool stop pads on my frogglegs. Tried green swiss stops but to be honest I wasn’t that impressed with them for the money so went back to kool stops. The swiss stops didn’t last very long either. Braking wasn’t transformed either so not really worth the money in my opinion. I might give them a go on my road bike just to give them a second chance.Posted 9 years ago
