    A few tips on replacing cartridge brake pads, and the importance of checking rims for wear.

    Road Brakes Blocks for Narrow (7mm) braking surface rims

    I am having problems finding Shimano compatible calliper brake blocks to fit my Ritchey WCS Protocol LTD wheels. The machined braking surface is only 7mm deep so normal blocks are too wide and hang below the braking surface and will destroy the black painted section and the decals. Anyone know of a manufacturer who makes a compatible cartridge brake block?

    Have you asked Ritchey - it must be a common issue for them?

    Upgraded my boggo FSA pads for some SwissStop green pads before my Alps trip. Just brilliant. Best 19 I spent!
