Thanks for the hint about the Koolstop pads. They just came. Ebay
tracking is a nice "mail is here" alert. It came early today.

They fit like a glove. I wonder why they now flare the trailing edge
inwards towards the rim. It would make the pad want to skew. Maybe I'll
grind that off.

No. It's meant to wipe the rim before the pad fully engages. It is
exactly what you want for dirt and wet weather performance.

That pointy tip also makes it easy to toe in the pads an appropriate
amount to reduce squeal/judder. Once the pads are installed, if that
"tip" wears off, it's already served one useful purpose.


I don't toe in my pads anymore because that causes slightly uneven wear,
meaning less miles/pair. To heck with a little squeal.


I've always considered brake squeal a benefit when riding on a multi
user venue as people seem to react favorable to a loud shriek while
ignoring the faint "ding,ding, ding of the common bicycle bell.


In Germany they call that the "anti-social" notification method: Right
before passing a pedestrian the rider briefly locks up the rear for a
loud screech.

I once came upon two girls hiking along a singletrack. At one section it
paralleled old train tracks where there is only the occasional slow and
tiny excursion train on weekends. This was a weekday and one of them
walked in the track so they could chat. I slowed down so they didn't
hear my MTB, turned my MP3 player to a track with a big Union Pacific
locomotive horn, then pushed play. GAAAAAH! The reaction was priceless.

Like straight pipes on a Harley. "It's a safety feature."
