Kool Stop Salmon pads wear faster?
Does anyone notice them wearing out faster then what else Kool Stop has to offer? My old Eagle2's on a canti setup showed a lot less wear then this.
Everything is setup properly I had a guy I deal with at my LBS who I trust set them up just in case. The pads are maybe 4 months old with 3 months of use which as been scarce with the winter.
EDIT: How often do you sand the surface of your pads?

hey there...def the salmons wear faster than others...i like the two color pads the best...im going to cantis thugh b/c i run a funky setup (old mtb frame w 700s) do you know if ritchey logic and ritchey reds are as good as everyone says? i havent used cantis...ever...actually except on a touring bike i have...what are the good ones anyways.? im thinking about onzas ....ten years ago i would have overtightened and broke...not now...or avid tris (but $$$) let me know if you have opinion...also unless you are in a lot of rain i think the salmons are not worth...im also in LA the driest place ever...
That salmon compound does brake better and wear faster. It's excellent. that said, I use the Kool Stop combo pads on bikes with canti- or vee- brakes, and those tend to wear longer but still brake very well.
