I switched from Shimano pads to Kool Stops and feel that the Kool Stops are much better. The LBS only had black ones in stock so that is what I purchased and have been using.

Now that I have my new Dura Ace 7850SL's I want to install new pads and am revisiting the brake pad decision.

Should I continue with Kook Stops? Black, salmon, or black/salmon?

Are Swiss stop pads worth the premium price? Color?

Thanks.

I've used Kool Stop pads for years and love them. The salmon pads are listed for wet weather, the black for normal conditions. IMO, the 50/50 pads are the best of both worlds.

+1 on the Kool Stop 50/50's. Metrosexual brake pads have made it to Spokane. :cool:
