Kool Stop Brake Pads 4 Sora Tiagra RSX?
I am trying to upgrade the braking on my Lemond Reno. It has RSX brake calipers s on it. Shimano pads, M50T or A410. (Not cartidge style)
I purchased some 'Dura Type' holders and pads by Kool Stop but they don't fit. The threaded nut is too big for the slots in the caliper arms. I also have a set of 105 cartridge pads and have a similiar problem using them on the RSX calipers; the bolt receiver on the 105 cartridge is not flush on the back of the cartridge and is too large to fit into the caliper arm slots.
Preferably I'd like to find cartridge holders to fit (narrow bolt) the caliper arms. Widening (drilling) the slots is not an option for me.
I would also consider not upgrading to cartridge style pad but I didn't a direct Kool Stop replacement for them.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
