Campagnolo Brake pads

Postby infopete » Wed May 08, 2013 21:48 pm

I'm rebuilding my Omega and I need new brake pads as there isn't much left on the current pads.

Campagnolo pads from Ribble are 15 ish quid, are there any other pads I should consider for about the same price or cheaper?

For instance, what are Clark pads like?

Miche replacement cartridge pads seem similar to Campag ones.

I use Koolstop dual compound black/salmon cartridge pads which I find better than the original Record pads. They are brilliant. I've also used BBB pads which are a decent cheaper alternative.

Swissstop ones are £24 for 2 pairs and very good

They're cheap enough and free postage too, I've ordered a set. I'll let you know what I think of them.

Campag OE pads are truly awful. Very noisy, very abrasive on the rims and don't stop well. I just replaced my GF's ones with Koolstops and the difference is night and day.

Her Campag pads were Athena spec callipers, new with the bike, bought in March.

I've got Athena callipers and Campag pads and find them a decent set with good stoppping power, much better than the Miche callipers on my other bike.

Nothing wrong with original Campagnolo pads.

Swiss stop GHP II (Green) or the new BXP (blue). Both are nearly twice the RRP of the Campag generic but they are better, particularly in the wet, but there really is nothing wrong with those supplied with top end Campag brake sets. I have a set of four Campag black blocks, used for one ride, came on my Record brake calipers. £10.00 including UK delivery. I also have a set of 4, possibly 2 sets, unopened in the original Campag boxes. £15.00 per set posted. All paypal gift or cash on collection from Stafford.

on-yer-bike: I have no need or urge to sell my spares and I really don't care what price you can (or can't) get them from Ribble. I was just trying to help a fellow forum member, but not you.
