Kool Stop MTB pads on 700 wheels?
My wife and I ride GT Nomads, usually with a burley and baby in tow. We typically stick to bike paths, however, I'm starting to use the bike for short commutes and plan to get a rack and some baskets or saddle bags.
Anyway, I got caught in a thunderstorm the other day and the performance of the OEM Tektro's suffered. I spottted these Kool Stops
and I like them (they remind me of some Ritcheys I had on my old Trek 7000 MTB). However, I see a review claiming they don't fit 700 tires, but I've never heard of "29er" MTB brake pads or 700 cyclocross pads, etc. Is it safe to assume the guy claiming they won't fit 700s is full of BS?
Any comments on performance? Would it also be safe to assume that claims of awesome braking power barely using one finger are also BS? I don't want to accidentally lock up the tires with baby in tow.
