Hi all:

I just got a new bike with Easton EC-90 rims and a professional bike mechanic told me that the pads on my Skeleton brakes weren't designed for the carbon rims.

Is there any way I can confirm this? They're all black and don't seem to have any writing on them that would indicate a model. Having said that, I haven't removed them and looked at the back.

Thanks. It seems odd that the manufacturer would make this mistake and I'd like a second opinion before I throw down $60 on the obnoxious yellow ones recommended by Easton.

Kyle

it says right on the pad, on the bottom surface. they look pretty similar to the normal pads, but on the bottom (not back) side of the pad it says 'carbon type t1' or t2 ( i think). campy pads for carbon tubulars and carbon clinchers are different. for easton wheels i'd use the yellow swissstop pads.

Campagnolo brake pads for alloy are black rubber.

The older carbon type is a "corky" brownish compound.

The newer type is colored, white for tubulars, red for clinchers AFAIK
