Replacement brake blocks
Swisstop every time here. Obviously make sure you buy the ones for your wheels, i.e. alloy versus carbon; it’s easy to walk away with a set having checked the manufacturer but not the wheel material!
They do come in two compounds; a harder wearing set in black and a slightly softer but higher performing set in purple. I run the latter and you do notice much better braking in the wet. It’s less noticeable in the dry.Posted 3 years agogeetee1972Member
Looking at the pack now; they are BXP Flash Pro ones.
Probably they are blue. My mum always said I would go blind. I guess she meant colour blind 😀
So, how do those fit with the pad holder thing? I can see the swisstops are like for like whereas the koolstops look like the don’t use the metal block?
They don’t; with the swissstop ones you replace the pad in the existing shoe (the pads slide in and have a retaining bolt that screws in perpendicular to the pad). With the Koolstop ones you replace the whole show, which means a little more work to realign the pads once you’ve done this.Posted 3 years ago
