Replacing brake pads
I find that I've ridden so much over the past two years that my brake pads are worn down. I want/need new ones. I have a pair of 2005-ish Xenon caliper brakes. What should I get?
Here's the Probikekit page: Brakes & Spare Pads
. Here are what appear to be my options:
EDIT: Options 1 and 2 are not applicable because Xenon brakes don't have shoes, they only have the pads into which the bolts are screwed.
1. Campagnolo BR-RE600 Caliper Brake Pads for pre 2000 Chorus, Record and Athena
Call me a complete doofus, but, erm, does this mean these inserts wouldn't fit into my brake pads?
2. Campagnolo Record/Chorus/Centaur Cartridge Brake Pads
Would these inserts work?
3. PBK Campagnolo Cartridge Brake Set (for pre 2004 Campag)
Yeah, I'm probably clueless, but will this not work with my Xenon brakes?
4. PBK Campagnolo Replacement Cartridge Brake Set for "2007 skeleton calipers and post 2005 Record and Chorus calipers"
What about these?
I like the idea of just replacing the rubber. How do you do that? Do you have to pry the old ones out and then glue the new ones in?
