So I hit the bike swap meet over the weekend and scored a set of nearly-new Deore LX M570 V-brakes. My commuter currently has an Avid SD5 in the front and a Tektro MT14 in the rear (which is not that great and is why I was hunting for new brakes in the first place).
My questions are these:
- LX M570 vs SD5: who's better
- The brakes have an almost-unused set of aluminum-specific pads on them. I can't tell what my rims are made of. Will I endanger myself using them if I have steel rims?
