View Full Version : help me internet: Brake Pads

06-27-2012, 06:41 AM
with an impending trip to some steep ground, replacing my well worn brake pads is probably a good move.

why on earth when I search for kool stop salmons for campagnolo do i get a bunch of e-retailers i've never heard of? it seems all of the places i normally do business with online dont carry these. anyone have a reliable internet source for campy kool stop salmon pads? apparently i fail at the interweb.

related: how do the swiss stop green pads compare to the kool stop slamons?? they seem to cover the same service conditions. competitive cyclist has them, but they are a good bit more $ than the kool stops, which have served me well forever.

these are going in ZG brakes btw.

I use the SwissStop greens and they work great and wear well. They seem to last a lot longer than the Kool Stops used to.

My opinion the ghp II are better pads.

Heck, Harris was happy to ship my Rambouillet frame/fork to me in SoCal. Nice folks. Real pros.
