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

OBE brake pads on ebay

Has anyone tried these brake pads?

$14 shipped for 4 pairs... about half the cost of Kool stop. I am considering these but have no idea what the different color pads mean.
