If they still have the original holders, you can find kool-stops on ebay for $20ish.

I did this recently with my Speedys, and the bike stops on a dime.

I used a spray oil to ease the pads in/out, else it would've been pretty difficult.

Kool Stop makes exact fit inserts. Black or salmon. I use both and highly recommend.

Iíll be using kool-stop pads for a lovely pair of Modolo Professional brakes I have slated for my current project. The original sintered pads are in near perfect shape, but Iím confident that kool stops will be worlds better of an upgrade.

Kool-Stop Modolo Inserts

Iím running the Superbe style salmon pads on a pair of Gran Compes, and theyíre every bit as good as folks say they are. Picked them up from Kool Stopís Amazon store.

Sanding Brake Blocks
 
:thumb: ^^^^^ Kool-Stops for your Modolos.

Some of the standard Modolo composition pads work acceptably, especially after .5mm has been sanded off the faces. For some reason they don't all work the same???

I tried out a set of the Kool-Stops on the Speedy brakes on one of my bikes and there's a world of difference. $20 bucks well spent.

BTW, I sand a small amount of face material off of even new brake pads and especially old pads. Even new pads have a hard surface that takes quite a few miles to wear off.

I've found that 3M Medium Drywall Sanding Screen works well for this. I've been able to restore hard old brake blocks to usability by removing ~ 1mm off the surfaces to access the softer material below.

Great information with images is always quite helpful...Thanks, Ben
P.S. do they make any for use with carbon fiber wheels that are replaceable?

@ verktyg That is great advice regarding pad, even new pad, preparation. As for Modolo pads... Pooey-Stinko!
