I'm fed up with the blocks that come as standard with calipers - they don't bloody work!

What is the best replacement type? I've had Koolstop in the past but they are pricey and seem to need fitting to existing shoes.

Any decent ones that don't cost as much as my MTB?

What sort of brakes/rims are you using?

My campag record dual pivots & campag blocks seem fine...

Ditto that, except mine are Chorus. Campag pads seem to work well in wet or dry.
