The braking surfaces of the pads are inside the holders, and the part of the pad that's shaped to provide an interference fit in the holder is serving as the braking surface. Somebody installed the pads "inside out".

Thatís why they looked a bit funny to me! I just thought it was some weird Campy Kool Stop pad that I wasnít familiar with! Ha!

Perfectly positioned to shower your butt cheeks with brake dust-blackened water - sweet!

I'm still getting used to clipless pedals. I temporarily threw a set on my '69 Raleigh Sports (anachronistic, I know) because I've been wanting to change out the stock bearing-less pedals that squeak like crazy all the time.

All was going well until I pulled up along a fence, some distance from a few good looking young women taking pictures of each other by the water.

I took my hand off the railing (still clipped in) to start riding again, but I was in high gear, and the wind stopped me in my tracks. Hit the ground like a sack o' potatoes.

The girls asked me if I was all right. I said yes. Fortunately, the only thing seriously injured that day was my ego.

Oh, and I did scuff up the nice Crane bell I have on the Raleigh.
