New brake pads for Dahon Mu P8
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 (, 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.

Thanks for the response, I ended up also posting in the Dahon forums and got the following response, in case anyone's interested
