My wife's ride needs the pads replaced, and we're looking to get here more performance. Technically that shouldn't be hard since we'll be replacing the stock pads from her Trek 4500 with a thousand miles on them and they're shot. But if I'm going to replace anything on her bike I'm doing it right. Within reason of course. Hubs are not disk ready, and it's not worth the $200 upgrade to disk on this bike, since we're just buying time with it until it gets demoted to a path/commuter.

So what are the best all condition brake pads? Were in lower Michigan so we have wet (sometimes very wet) and dry conditions.

Thanks

After a very rare overwhelming majority opinion was rendered i picked up some Kool stop salmon at my LBS. Now with the foot of snow we just got today, we'll see the next time they stop anything more than the flywheel of the trainer...

Thanks for the answers...
