    What Brake pads do you recomend (V-BRAKE

    I've got a V Brake, and need some new pads for my bike for next season. My LBS has a slew of different brands and models of Brake Pads, and was just wondering what you guys thought was a good brand, and a good model

    Thanks a lot

    I've only used a couple, but...

    the ones I like most so far have been the Delta Aztec 2's. My current brakeset (Avid 7.0's) came with Rim Wranglers and they have been pretty good, but if you read the reviews there are many people that don't agree

    I use Kool stop or XT cartridge type pads...don't be fooled by the "wanna be xt" cartridge, they're knowhere as good as the real mc coys... and they're cheap now that everything is disc.

    My Vote is for WTB

    I'll vote for WTB Abrasive (Red) if ceramic rims, or Standard (black) compound if they're regular rims.

    I think that Kool Stop makes WTB's pads, but not 100% sure on that....
