Yah what the hell does Shimano put in their brake pads.

I don't really remember having any trouble with the stock 105 pads that came on my bike, but I never found those for sale again. The Ultegra and Dura Ace pads I tried really seemed to be chewing up the rims and I'd find tons of slivers of metal in the pads when I tried to clean them.

The Kool Stop pads really do seem to make a difference.
