Looking for reasonably priced Swisstop yellow carbon brake pads before going to Evil-Bay...
Zipp Carbon brake pads. 2 pairs (complete set for a bike).
PM me please.
lightly used OK?
Commuter - Bianchi Pista
MTB - Bianchi Jab 7400
Trainer- Bianchi S9 Matta Reparto Titanium
Weekender - Colnago CX-1 - SRAM Red - FFWD
Yes mate as long as the price is very light as well
ive got new yellows for shimano if youre interested.
get yourself some reynolds blue pads... swisstop yellow are horrible
if i get killed while out on my bike i dont want a 'memorial ride' by random punters i have never met.
I'd assume carbon as per the title, and as they're carbon specific compound.
What are your thoughts Pawnii (or others) I've been reluctant to try rubber on the carbon clinchers I have?
Change of plans...I am now looking for Reynolds Assault Blue pads. The Swisstop has just ruined my front Reynolds' rims yesterday at Kurrajong Hills.
It was the only difference. I always used Reynolds pads. Same bike same rims, same mountain travelled but different pads yesterday. Burned rims.
Deduced to swisstop yellows most probably causing it. Looking at forums...looks like heat dissipation is not its strong suit for long descents and I am not alone in experienced this........
It really depends on which carbon rims you're running. I've had great success with Yellows on Edge 1.45 carbon clincher rims.
I've also used Corima Red cork pad and find they are better in the dry but terrible in the wet. Also, i found performance deteriorates dramatically after 2000kms with cork.
Over the years i've heard Yellows are not suited to some rims and cork pads are better. I've also heard the total opposite for the same setup.
Half of my mates swear by cork the other half swear by Yellows.
IMO the best thing to do is to find out what the best suited pads for a particular rim/wheel set.
It's a little bit trial and error maybe. (can be dangerous and expensive though)
Sorry to hear. Nothing scares me more than brake/rim failure while descending.
What's wrong with the rim? Pics?
I used corma red corks ... Now use reynolds blue .. There's no comparison the blues are tha bomb
"My father touched me like that once. To this day, he still has to wear orthopedic shirts."
At the end of the day , it is the Indian , not the arrow .. so ride what you want
Can I ask where you guys are getting the blue pads from ? Having trouble getting them around my way.
