Does anyone know who stocks these "Lightweight" specific brake pads. I cannot find them anywhere. Thanks for any help.

Well, Wrench Science has a, hmm, uncommon, definition of "stock". I rode there to pick up a set but they didn't have any. I was told "in stock" means the parts are available at the distributor... Obviously that's not a problem when purchasing them online.

I would honestly just buy some black prince. I have meilensteins and they provide mildly better braking/modulation and MUCH better heat control (albeit from an unscientific finger to brake surface check). Keep the old pads to rub on rims in case of warranty issues.

Same experience with Wrench Science; in stock means in stock somewhere :noidea: You need to call them to check if they really have it.

I bought a set from Above Category in Sausolito about 3 weeks ago. If you haven't been there, it is a small boutique shop. The owner is very found of Baum bicycles (he had three on display) and Parle (he had a Z0).

If they don't have the pads, try, Palo Alto Bicycles...

They are basically Swiss Stop Black Prince on Lightweight packaging with Lightweight logos......we distribute both brands and use the black prince as replacements. Don't use the Yellow ones!

Sorry if this topic is not the correct local to my question but... can be used Corima cork brake pads on Lightweight wheels or may occur any issue with rims (like yellow swisstop)?

I like cork pads with my Lightweights. You get more stopping power with the Swiss-stop pads, but the corks are smoother and modulate a little better.
