Quite a surprise for me when I got back from Italy to find free brakes in the mail. I was expecting, if I can even call it that, maybe a t-shirt and coffee mug or something like that. A really stunning display of generosity to a group of people who have done nothing more than shoot off their mouths on a forum. Not sure how it rates as a business strategy but it rates very high with me. Grazie mille to Ted and ZG!

Nice to see that there are good companies and quality people around. That was a fantastic gesture on Teds part. Makes me want to buy a set. Congradulations to all involved!

perhaps the wrong thread to be asking this but... what do you guys think of the swissstop yellow pads on alu rims? I was using them on my carbon rims and they were great, but mid race I busted my full carbon rims and had to take neutral wheels (zipp clinchers) and found these pads did a whole lot of sliding and not a lot of stopping...

well honestly I haven't put enough wear on mine to truly give a review of them. I've ridden a few times but haven't had any issues stopping.

Yeah, I thought they were a little grippy out of the box but it seemed to fade after a while or I just got used to the feel.

Aren't the yellow Swissstops for carbon rims?

the yellows will work perfectly fine on alloy rims... I used them on carbon and alloy... no probs at all. first ride they did squeak a bit, but no probs after that.
