I just bought wood wheels on eBay from this seller:
These guys make wood wheels and sell them on eBay. I think they look really nice and will make my 80's Miyata 610 build have a more classic look (will post pictures once its done).
The question that I have, which I realized after I bought them, is what type of brake pads to use. The Miyata uses old Dia Compe cantilever brakes, which I plan to reuse as part of the build, with black rubber pads. I think that these pads will damage the wood or mar the surface due to the hard black rubber material. Are there any pads out there that are gentle on wood wheels? I have googled around and even browsed this forum to no avail. The closest answer that I got was to buy cork brake pads, is the correct?
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
