cork/carbon pads? Also Campy10s corncob cassette crazy sale.

Bonty wheels, so the pads that came with.

Seems Swiss Stop black prince variants or yellows are more desirable.

Who is using what they feel strongly enough to suggest.

I use the green swiss stop disc pads. This is a case of I don't care how much they cost they improve things so much. For carbon brake surface, I feel that same way for delivery of best performance. They rear is OK, but front I want to improve. Don't like too strong a brake at the rear anyway...

Yabbut I think that may be a "junior" cassette and I don't think that there is ANY demand for these anymore.

I have one 11 speed 14-28. It is helpful on rocket rides, I get spit out of the front group 45 minutes later than with too many 2 tooth jumps... ;)

Not that I am doing those much anymore. Lighter and better fitness over a lot of previous seasons, I think about it though... ;)

Flash Pro pads arrived. Holy smokes that is a massive improvement!

In the order/magnitude of 5x I'd say.

I stuck a pair on the front, so I can have two bikes setup Flash front and Bonty origs rear so the wheels are not dedicated to one bike.

Expensive, but just like with the organic disc swiss stops, well worth the coin IME.


Going out to see how they behave when I get them good and hot...
