I've had Kool-Stop salmon color pads that could not be de-squeaked, no matter what the adjustment. It happened on newer, less-worn rims. The only solution was to replace them with Kool-Stop black
pads, run them for a while to bed in the rim, then switch back to salmons.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
