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?

2008 Trek Madone

Trek launches the 2008 Madones with a brochure site and lots of new technology, including a oversized 90mm wide bottom bracket shell, no headsets, seatmast, new carbon designations, and a fuselage approach. Responding to their competitors, like Specialized, Trek is coming out firing with a “we invented carbon bikes” approach and a frame that’s a half-pound lighter

By de-emphasizing specific materials and instead focusing the discussion on our OCLV Carbon process “ a process we invented 16 years ago and have been refining ever since - Trek can leverage our manufacturing, engineering, and design expertise to underscore the unique nature of our carbon fiber frames: a difference we’re confident makes for the best carbon fiber frames on the planet.
