Rear brake: currently using KoolStop Eagle 2 brake pads on our Tektro Mini-V brake.
Front brake: original Dura Ace caliper pads. Got over 23,000 miles on them and they still work fine.
We use our rear brake harder and much more than the front.
Best pads we ever used was back in the 80s when we got over 50,000 miles off a set of Scott/Matthauser pads on the rear of our tandem.
And yes, we do live in hilly terrain.
We are a sub-250 lb duo.
Pedal on TWOgether!
