Does anyone know which brake pads are the best to use on my ZG Ti calipers with aluminum rims? There are a few choices out there and I'd like to know which are the best.

I prefer the Corima corks on my Ksyrium SL's. They stop pretty good and are very light... though I only weigh 58kg. My only gripe is that once they get dirty, they dont ever seem to come clean.. does anybody have a good way to clean these pads?

Swissstop green pads are good all around pads and are compatible.. They have a bit better modulation and wear life than Dura Ace and Kool Stops.

I use standard campy pads, which slide straight in. They're not as effective as the Swisstops that I used to use, but the wear the rim down less as well. They stop well with good modulation, and that's gppd enough for me. Campy pads are probably easier to come by than swisstops.
