What's the best way to clean the rim and pads for v-brakes?
I was away from my MTB for about a year and before riding it I cleaned the rims using iso alcohol. I'm getting a howling/honking when I brake hard with the front brake. The braking also stutters slightly. It uses KoolStop pads. I wonder if the pads are dirty, but I don't know the best way to clean them. Is sanding/filing them appropriate? I cleaned the rims on my wife's bike the same way and they're super quiet and smooth, but it uses different v-brakes.
