They seem to last pretty long, too.

I could get away with running the Avenir's front and back but I've just been running the Kool-Stops in back and the Sticky-Fingers up front.

The installation was as easy as ever, and they stop great.

I have been riding with these on my mountain bike for over a month. So far I love them. My old Shimano pads had become noisy, and were grinding down the rims. These Kool Stop pads are almost silent. They do a much better job of stopping the bike than the old pads. They work well in the rain, they are easy to modulate, and they aren't "grabby."

One note of caution: Thoroughly clean your rims before putting these pads on, to remove all the material deposited by your old pads. Otherwise, your wet stopping ability will be decreased.

put these on my bmx bike. originally, it took a long time for my brakes to fully stop my bike. then i put these on, and the lightest tap of the brake and the wheel would skid (fun, but bad for tires.) i wouldnt reccomend them for front brakes, because these will probably shoot u over the handlebars. definately buy!!

I have an older "city bike" with calliper brakes and steel rims. I first bought some cheaper (Dia Compe Grey Matter) pads, but those were horrible.

On my first ride with Kool Stop salmon pads, I was able to lock up my rear wheel with a firm pull of the brakes.

As a side note, these do work perfectly well with old-school calliper brakes. I wasn't sure if they would or not, so I also bought a pair of the Kool Stop Continental salmon pads (which look like the normal, old-school brake blocks). Turns out, they both work fine (I think any of the Kool Stop threaded pads will) but, for an extra $1, these have a larger surface area, a cool squeegee to clean debris from the rims, and conical washers to allow adjustment of the pads.

I don't review many products online, but did want to say that these are great!

I have years of experience installing brake shoes on my bikes and on other people's bikes. There are no better brake shoes (brake pads) than Kool Stop. These are worth every penny. They would be a bargain at twice the price.

These pads are not only thick, but they work very very well, just the slightest tap of the brake and the bike stops fast! I highly recommend them. :)

Back before the days of disks and even linear pull brakes, cantilever brakes were the norm on mountain bikes. I first started using Eagle Claw shoes in the 90's; the plain black compound then. They were and are great. Easy to install, as canti shoes go, and the fin on the back plays a dual role of sweeping wet stuff off the rim and setting the toe-in for the contact surface. On he recommendation of my LBS, I tried the dual compound with black and salmon this time. The installation was as easy as ever, and they stop great. I have not used them yet in any wet and muddy conditions, so I am not sure how much the salmon compound will make a difference the next time I get caught on a muddy ride.

I have to add that i was on the verge of upgrading to linear pull brakes on this bike, but I decided to clean the rims and throw on new KS shoes instead, and I am happy. This bike is more for trail riding and touring; and the cantilevers give ample stopping power. For hard-core mountain riding, I would go linear pull; probably with Kool Stop shoes on those brakes.

One of the best brake pads you can buy satisfies me once again! You really can't beat Kool-Stop for their price and quality. The threaded models have a long enough bolt that will fit almost any center pull / side pull brake system. Highly recommend.

I've got a pair of these Kool-Stops (Dual compound) on my MTB but they are not any better than the standard all-black "sticky fingers" pads by Avenir. If anything, I think the Avenir's are better as they stop just as well in wet or dry (if not better) and seem to be wearing better than the Kool-stops.

An interesting thing about the Avenir Sticky fingers is that they mount exactly backwards from these Kool-Stops in that the bigger side of the pad goes on the trailing edge of the mounting post rather than the other way around like on the Kool-Stops.

Since my old Ross Cantilever-braked Mt. Hood was made before the days of these non-symmetrical pads the Kool-Stops won't fit up front in the correct orientation and the Sticky-Fingers won't fit in back without interfering with the wheelstays when I try and pull the wheels out and not openening up all the way. The only way around this is to run the pads backwards from the way they are labled. The Sticky-fingers don't seem to make a difference frontwards or backawards, but the Kool-stops have a huge loss in performance when run backwards. I could get away with running the Avenir's front and back but I've just been running the Kool-Stops in back and the Sticky-Fingers up front. This is something to think about if you have an older MTB and don't have as much clearance between the Cantis and the wheelstays or forks.

These Kool-Stops are OK brakes but not worth the price when the Avenir Sticky-Fingers are just as good, reversible, and much cheaper. Maybe when people discover this the price of them will go up to match their performance and the price of the Kool-Stops.
