Hello to all.........has anybody ever tried using ceramic (green) v-brake pads on a anodized aluminum rim? I am trying all sorts of combinations (black, red, dual-compound, etc) to try to get rid of that damn brake squeal from my front brake. Yes, it is the infamous "Shimano-squeal". Please don't tell me about "toe-in" because I've worn out two sets of nuts and allen wrenches from adjusting these pads. As of right now I have KoolStop dual compound pads that only squeal when they're cold; once they warm up they're okay with very little squeal. It's just that I leave for work at 4:30am and I'm afraid that one of these days my neighbors will take a couple of shots at me when I ride by their houses (I live on a mountain side and it's downhill to work). Why do the pads squeal only when cold? Hoping that maybe ceramic pads might do something!
