Ta - so do you think the modern pads I got from my local bike shop (above) will do the trick?


I am sure they will do the trick, not used XLC pads but assume they are decent if your bike shop sold them to you.

I use Koolstop, they are not cheap I think I paid over £15 for mine.

Did I read elsewhere that the numbers on Weinmann brakes refer to the length of the arms? i.e. Weinmann 570 will be 5.7cm long, 600 6cm etc? And presuming the longer the arms, the better?


It is the length, or "reach" of the arms. But more isn't better, because it's the reach from the bolt hole to the rim. Too much or too little and it'll miss entirely - you don't want brake blocks touching the tyre or the spokes :shock:
