So, I'm just curious to what other people are using. This is my 3rd set of brakes this year, I seem to go through about a set a month or so. Right now, I'm using some tektro brakes that came standard with my bike Giant Escape City, on my old road bike I had over the counter Shimano Road Brakes. I live in Seattle and there is plenty of rain, so I know that rain and Rim brakes don't agree with each other. I'm looking for the most efficient set of brakes that I can find.
They need to do the following:
* last more than 400 miles
* survive in the Rain
* preferably with replaceable pads (so i don't have to worry about readjusting my brakes all the time)
* fit my 700cc x 32mm Hybrid Rims
If my brakes need to be replaced every month, so be it, I know I'm a heavy rider, I know I ride mostly in the rain, I know there are lots of hills on my ride. I've seen the salmon brakes form Kool Stop and the Shimano Ultegras, but I'm not familiar enough with any of them to make an informed decision without just doing a lot of expensive trial and error.
