need to report a major success. I have been running Kool Stop Thinline pads on my Litepro V-brakes. For some reason, these salmon colored pads squealed loudly on my front rim. I would sand the pads to clean the surface and sand the rim to remove any oils, dirt, ect. that could cause squeal. It got to a point when I had to lightly sand every other ride, even in dry conditions. Toeing the pads in did not silence the squeal either. (Interestingly, my back wheel never squealed.)
I purchased the Cantilever Brake Shoes w/ Squeal-Free Pads, Threaded Post and finally installed them. NO SQUEAL...even when riding in the rain and on gravel paths. It has been several days of pure silence without the need to clean the rims or the pads. I am not sure if it is the compound comprising the pads, or that the metal hardware holds the pads more firmly against the rim, or both, but they work really well on my Platypus.
For YEARS I have bought Kool Stop Brake pads and struggled with squeal. I was setting up Tektro 710’s with thin line SKueal Stops and could not get them to stop! Put these on with 1/32” toe in and BOOM!! Thank You 😊
Good stopping, good looking, good pricing, and, as advertised, squeal-free.
