    Best brake pads used - road bike Durace/Ultegra

    Hi all,

    I know there has been a lot of discussion here on brakes and brake pads, but I was wondering if someone could give me a site or a link to a site that sells the performance brake pads for the 'Durace' and 'Ultegra' brakes on a road bike?.....

    I Have seen a red compound pad that was advertised as a superior stopping unit but have been unable to find it again.

    As I will be doing a lot of climbing training - and obvious downhill runs after - I thought I should upgrade for this training to a superior/better pad.

    Any help would be appreciated - either here or direct to my email

    kni-time@bigpond.net.au

    Cheers

    Yep, Kool Stops.
    Salmon pads are what you seek.

    For Kool Stop Dual Compound Pads/Holders. Dual compound is great for distance touring.... Black for dry conditions and don't wear as quickly as the Salmon......Salmon compound, in case you get caught in the rain.
