The worn Koolstop pads are 52mm long. Would these fit
I am a little puzzled by the clip that gets shipped along
because Koolstop only has the set screw.
Those replace this Kool Stop product:
If your setup does not include the little wire pins then
not. What is it that you have now?
They look like this but with the holes in the metal body:
You loosen the set screw and the pad slides out the back.
However, I don't want Koolstop stuff anymore. It's
expensive, the pads wear quickly and to top it off the
mounting hardware rusts fast. YGWYPF? I don't think so.
The EVO inserts you referenced earlier are the wrong part.
You probably want these:
Product menu in that link is easy to use.
Thanks. $10+ is a bit much for those but I saw them on EBay for $8.
Good grief! If $2 is that important to you, your business must be failing.
Spend less time posting here, spend more time finding clients. Then support
I don't want any more clients, want less clients, want to retire and
ride. Anyhow, after Jay's response I just ordered the black version for
dry conditions. $7.25, that's an ok price for rim brake pads. Not as low
as Clarks but with these I don't have to install and adjust the whole
thing, just loosen a set screw and swap the rubber parts.
I think the question is whether you want a cheap pad or an effective
pad. I can buy brake pads locally, actually the entire brake shoe -
pad, holder and nut to hold it on - for approximately 50 cents each,
about a dollar a wheel. They don't last long and they don't stop very
well, but they are cheap.
Or I can buy a Koolstop look alike for about 10 dollars a wheel that
do stop in wet or dry conditions and last a long time.
As somebody once said, you pays your money and you takes your choice.
(But after you make your choice don't whine about it)
