    Ceramic Rim Brake Pads

    Hey all,

    Im looking at purchasing some brake pads for my new ceramic wheelset. Does anyone have any suggestions on what pads to get.

    I know koolstop has a few options as well as shimano. Based on previous experience, what has worked for you?

    cheers,
    Aaron

    I like the Kool Stops better, been using them for many years, seems like the Shimano gunk faster.

    Koolstop green and XTR ceramic are the best. The Shimano are the most abrasive but for me studdered less than the koolstops.
