    road bicycle brake pads

    i have a schwinn world sport but it seems it doesn't brake well comparing to mountain bikes.

    so i'm thinking of changing the brake pads. Currently, i have 3 sectioned pads..i dunno how it's called. lol

    3 squares in a pad. Any suggestion about the 4 squares in a pad?

    Less than $10 a pair....

    thx!
