New brake pads for Dahon Mu P8
 
Hi
I need to replace the brake pads on my Dahon Mu P8 and am thinking of getting a set of Koolstop pads, the salmon coloured ones or one of the combination black/salmon pads. The Koolstop web site mentions Shimano and Campag brakes, neither of which are fitted to the Mu P8 (which has Kinetix Speedstop brakes - are they Dahon-specific?) so I don't know exactly which Koolstop product I need to get to fit my bike?

Can anyone advise?

Many thanks in advance

Kinetix seems to be one of Dahon's trademarks (http://tinyurl.com/nrhffq), similar to Biologic, but probably they are compatible with some standard pads. If nobody will come with a definite answer, post here a picture of your old pads.
