Shimano Cantilever Brake Pads: Recommend a KoolStop Thinline for the Winter
This will be my 3rd winter bicycle commuting. I ride a 1994 "commuterified" MTB all winter and as a wet commuter in the other 3 months, approximately 9 miles each way.
I would like a brakepad recommendation from the masses, if you're not too busy:
1. For years I'lve bought the cheapest KoolStop Thinline pads I can find on eBay or elsewhere (black and blue compounds).
2. I've *never* used any Salmon or Salmon/combo pads.
3. I use <fill in the blank>17 Mavic rims exclusively on this rough weather bike.
My question is: What brake pad would be the best choice assuming I am using mid 90's cantilever brakes all winter and on definite rainy days the other 3 seasons? I'm fine for stocking a few different kinds. My stock is currently two sets of Thinline blacks.
thanks in advance!
