Overall Product Rating 3 / 5
Indispensable with CSS rims

I recommend this product
ConsSo-so performance when wet, squeal horribly when newly installed.
ProsIf you have CSS rims, these are the only game in town.
I put CSS rims under my Brompton and rebuilt the wheels. Nothing but praise but also a word of warning: especially during the first couple 100 km you absolutely need these blocks and none other. All others will literally come apart, I went through a pair of Koolstop salmon in 3 days. Braking performance dry is a bit lower than Koolstop salmon. When wet it's not terrible, think direction Fibrax pads on Brompton.

Will these fit my V-brakes
30 Jan 2019

Are these just for road calipers or will they also fit my Shimano Deore XT BR-T780 V-Brakes?

I am wondering whether they would be better in the wet than the Kool Stop R16 V2 V Brake Inserts if they fit? https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/brake-blocks/kool-stop-r16-v2-v-brake-inserts-ryde-rigida-css/

suitable for road calipers.It won't fit V-brakes.

many thanks
