SwissStop RX Yellow King Brake Pads. Anyone use them?
I heard they can be used on both carbon and aluminum (if you make sure there are no metal shavings in the pads when changing them out to carbon).
Anyone use them or something else that works for both.
When i was in my lbs, someone recommended these to a guy in there:

But bottom line these things are tight and you should get them over any other carbon pad.
Yep Swissstop pads cant be touched. They will throw you over your bars (er possibly that is just me....).
