    Kool-Stop vs. Hayes pads

    Did anyone had a chance to compare the performance of the Kool-Stop replacement pads against the Hayes Pads?

    I replaced my worn out stock Hayes pads on my Giant AC (HMX-1s). Not sure whether it was the pad, dirty rotor, worn out retainer springs or what, but the rear brake (did not replace front) squealed and vibrated and drove me up the wall. I bought new pads (axiom or something??) and put them on the rear (came with new retainer springs) and they fixed the squeal/vibration. I put the Kool Stop on the front. Fine.

    I wouldn't buy them again though.

    I've been using them with HMX-1's on the rear. Seem comparable to the Hayes pads, but half the price.
