I commute on a Giant Defy II. The brakes are the only great disappointment. A lot of people like the KOOL STOP pads so I visited their web site. I didn't realize they had so many compound variables.
I ride in very dry conditions (Mohave Desert) and relatively short but steep hills and lots of them. What pad upgrade would be good for these two criteria? Doesn't have to be Kool Stops either.
Thanks a bunch!
