Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Brake Pads?

I am at the point now that I have to change the brake pads on my road bike. I was wondering which pads that are Shimano compatible are considered the best? I know that with rim brakes on a MTB the XTR's are considered about the best. Does this translate over to the road and Dura Ace is the best? Are there any after market makers that have exceptional pads?
Any suggestions or feedback would be appreciated.:confused:

Check out the new Jagwire pads and complete line of products.

Also the Kool Stop pads are excellent.
