Brake pad for Dahon Vitesse D7

Hello

What are the usually recommended brake pads for the Dahon Vitesse D7 cantilevers ?

By the way, can this frame receive any type/brand/model of cantilevers ?

Thanks in advance

Luc

The only brake pad I recommend is the Koolstop salmon colour pads. I use them on all my rim brake bikes.

Thanks for the advice !!

Great advice !

I tried a set of those



Incredible braking efficiency and absolutely NO noise.. perfect

So perfect by the way that on strong stop my real wheel tend to go its own way :-)

Now next step is replacing original v-brakes by a pair of AVID Digit 5 (not for performance but for look :-) )

Thanks again
