In recent years, I've been running Kool Stop salmon pads on all my brakes. When I bought the '09 Campy Centaur group to install on my '97 Pinarello, I thought I'd simply remove the Campy pads and install Campy-compatible Kool Stop refill pads in their place......NOT! Those Campy brake shoes, complete with the Campy pads, are sitting in my parts box. I couldn't get the darned pads out.

Confession: my (almost) all-Campy equipped Pinarello has Kool Stop Campy-compatible brake shoes (the metal holders and refill pads).

The Kool Stop refill pads, in the Kool stop holders, are very easy to remove and install.
