Carbon Brake Pads!

Ok, the oft-asked, much debated, and a bit confusing question on brake pads came up for me this weekend at a hilly race when a set of Kool Stop carbons squealed like Lindsay Lohan at a Hollywood coke party.

I had run just regular Dura Ace pads on my Hed Stinger 50s with no problem, but understand with the heat and descents they’ll melt with disastrous results. So I switched to the Kool Stop and they were fine for the first hour, then the horrible squeal started.

So what do you do? Live with the squeal, use a different pad, what?
