As the title says, I would like to know what your favourite brake pad is. I'm going on a 5000 kilometer trip in a couple of months, and I want to put the best brakepads on my bike.
I have Shimano Deore LX V-brakes, on a Mavic XM 317 rim, and I look for durability over time, and breaking power. The brakes will be fighting a near 300 lb load with me, bike and gear.
I've read through the previous posts and it seems that a lot of you favour Kool Stop brake pads? What is your experience, and what would you choose?
