    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

    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
