    Kool Stop or Goodridge

    I have Elixir CRs and need new pads. Instead of going with Avid pads, I thought I would try Kool Stop or Goodridge replacement pads. Anyone every try these? Thoughts?

    Thanks

    I've been using the Kool Stop pads for a couple years now on my Hayes brakes.
    Good quality stuff.
    I've heard good stuff about Goodridge pads as well.
    I don't think you can go wrong with either.
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.

    I tried Koolstop (sintered-type) last year when I replaced my XT brake pads. Holy CHIT do they bit down hard. If you want increase grab, try sintered-type pads.
