So it rained today during commute. Looks like the V-Brake pad 'bled' all over the rear rim. Instead of typical road grime- there appeared to be lots of gray gunk on the rear rim--(pads are grey also).
Is this a sign of cheap brake pads?. They are the stock pads that came with the AVID Single Digit 5's. The pads don't look worn out yet-I can still see the grooves in the pads. And I don't think I braked especially hard anywhere. If I had the Kool Stop pads that people rave about- would this occur?
Also, I typically wipe down the rims after a wet ride to get the other gunk and road grime off before the next ride. Is that recommended practice? TIA for any advice.
