I just replaced the brake shoes on the ProMax dual pivot calipers that came with my Milwaukee with a set of these:



They are the KoolStop Dura holders & pads. What an incredible difference in stopping power. I only have a front brake but putting these on changed the braking from adequate to "Whoa! Easy there!". Not cheap ($24.00 for a set), but they also come with an extra set of refills in the awesome salmon compound.

If you have crappy brakes, you might want to try a set of these.

I may give those a shot. Riding in the rain this winter, it seems I'm going through a set of pads every couple of weeks (which is about how long my last two Shimano singlespeed freewheels have lasted -- anyone suggest a longer lasting ss freewheel??).

I expect my Shimano freewheel will last a LONG time. I have only tried it once, didn't like it, and have ridden fixed ever since. ;-)

The White Industries ENO is the (Chris) King of freewheels... as such, be prepared to pay.
