my brakes are leaving tons of brake dust in the grooves of brushed mavic pro breaking surfaces, i have tried cleaning it with regular cleaners. I was wondering if an aluminum polish or something else would get it out better so that my nice silver rims dont look black and really worn when they are almost brand new.
Don't use polish on the braking surfaces or you'll find yourself dragging both feet on the ground in a feeble attempt to stop!
As far as cleaning the braking surface try a ScotchBrite pad. Also check your pads for dirt, and can light scrub those also with the same pad. When done with the rim just wipe it and the pads with plain rubbing alcohol, it leaves no residue like other cleaners can which can effect your braking.
