    What Kool Stop Pads to get for mini V-brakes?

    I'm looking for a pad for Mini V's for mostly dry conditions, aluminum rims. Looks like I have a few different choices. Any recommendations?

    Salmon are good but they do leave a bit of residue on the braking surface if used in dry conditions. @ least that has been my experience using um on full sized v brakes. Try the black ones first and see how it goes. YMMV
