I wanted to get your opinion on the best V-Brake Pad for trail riding. I have a Trek 4300 and I've noticed some slipping when the trails are wet. Is there a pad that works great in both dry and wet/muddy conditions?
Also, should I eventually upgrade my bike to disc brakes? What would a ballpark cost be for something like that?
Thanks for any help!

They all will experience decreased power in the wet, ceramic rims less than others. I love disc brakes, personally. 3-6 Hundred for a decent disc set-up, unless you can find a deal.
