Hi gents. Which Kool Stop pads do you recommend as a replacement pad for SCs? In looking at the all the options, I'm a bit overwhelmed. :shock:

I have a set of XT M372s that I will be canabilizing for the higher quality eye bolts as a replacement for the lower quality bolts that are currently on my SCs, which I understand were not factory from Grafton BITD.

Early thanks!

Kool-stop or Aztec red's(salmon) work a treat, and some say are easier on the rims.
Cheers

As the calipers are so nice, how about matching them up to old school scott mathauser pads ?

Same question applies to all retro brake pads, including Mathausers. I see the brake pads need to be threadless but am not sure of what size/style would be appropriate.

These will fit in shimano brake holders for sure as I have recently nabbed some,

I could be wrong but think there is only one diameter of cantilver brake arm .

Thanks! If the seller is willing to ship, I'll order a set as I'll be using Shimano eyelets moving forward.
