    Looking for Ceramic Rim Brake Pads

    I'm running Avid Single Digit Ti's on my SJ. I just got new Crossmax SL's and need to find a set of pads that will work with these. I'm trying to read reviews, but it's hard to tell what's offered in ceramic pad form. Suggestions?

    Avid Rim Wrangler 2 Ceramic Compound is green
    Jagwire Switchback Ceramic pads
    Koolstop Thinline Ceramic is green. They also come in replacement inserts.
    XTR pads come for ceramic rims.

    I'm definitely against the XTR's after reading their reviews. I don't really feel like replacing rims often :-\.

    Thanks for the reply will.

    I'm kinda lost with buying brakes...can I just order pads, or do I need the new assembly?

    Most of those come as just replacement cartridges. But you can buy the whole assembly if you need it.

    Most of the guys that come through the shop run the Avid pads and really like them. I've run the regular Koolstop pads and liked them

    I'm sorry, maybe I didn't word it correctly...but can I just add pads to the my Avid Ti's? I tried taking the pin out and the pad wouldn't come off...did I do something wrong?

    edit: I retract this statement..I figured it out :-)

    You pull the pin out, and then the pad slides out of the backing. Push the new pad in, push the pin back through.

    I'm a fan of the koolstop pads. That's what I used before they invenyed those crazy disk looking brakes.
