I noticed during the fast decents that the Meilenstein wheels screamed a lot when braking hard. I use the lightweight brakepads as well.
I was wondering if anybody experienced the same with their Meilenstein wheels. Maybe the brakepads need to replaced or more towed in, but the brakepads are looking fine and I believe the pads are towed in well. The screaming only occured during hard braking on decents.
The Meilenstein clinchers did a great job in the mountains and I am very satisfied with the performace but the screaming was too loud.

This will take some weeks. Until that only the Lightweight by Swissstop pads are allowed for Lightweights wheels to avoid a loss of warranty.
We're still testing them.
However, there seems to be some information flowing around (not from CarbonSports) suggesting that Black Prince pads aren't suitable for LW's.
Do you have any idea what kind of wear they're causing on the rim brake surface? Can you quantify how Black Prince pad longevity compares to LW (grey) pads or SwissStop yellow? How does the performance compare, in dry conditions and in wet conditions?
I would be interested to know from fellow Lightweight owners on here, how many have experienced a very slight tolerance issue on the front wheel. According to their quality control department, the tolerance can be up to 0,55 mm.

Good clarifying question. No, on CCU's. I found SS yellows to be adequate but grabby on LW Gen IIIs.
Lets face it warranty issue on LW's arent going to be from brake tracks wearing through. More likely a spoke takes a hit from the side in a crash or something inadvertent, but it is owners risk tolerance which dictates comfort level.
