Fed up with the frankly embarrassing noises that anounce my imminent arrive out of the woods on the cross bike despite any amount of toeing in (using HO's so that's nice and easy).

So are there any opinions on which to buy for a quieter life and better all round stopping power? Looked at CRC quickly but couldn't see much in the way of canti blocks and no Kool Stops for canti's? (probably just invited a web link to a set at CRC now haven't I?)

:)

Got WTB Speedmaster cantis on my Breezer (v. similar design to the Onzas) which screamed like a b**ch until I fitted these. :wink:

Crap, I got some Koolstop Eagle II's (in Red 8) ) from CRC about 3 weeks ago. Guess they've stopped making 'em? :(

Would be worth an email to CRC to find out, they are great pads....

Are these the Eagle II's you were referring to?

They aren't at CRC but are at Wiggle (although listed as inserts - I am presuming that means with the metal shaft rather than some bizarre V brake type insert for a canti block?).

Is the colour compound specific or just aesthetic?

Yup, they're the puppies.

Those colours are just for aesthetics, but they do ceramic and dual compounds versions too apparantly.
