No doubt.Oh, well. Looking at ebay it seems there's about 10 different kinds of pads for chinese carbon wheels. Blue, brown, black, red, grey, pretty much everything... that doesn't help any. If I were you I'd start with ones like Swisstop Black Prince or Farsports Ceramic and try those out. Or you could of course buy lots of different cheap ones from ebay and try them all out a little.
Well, if I were you I'd be dead already. That front wheel would send me for a ride in the crosswinds no question.
I've been fortunate so far...as far as crosswinds are concerned. However, I did get caught in a pretty bad storm that was preceded with extremely high winds. I felt like I was gonna take off.No doubt.
My new-style 44's catch enough air on my bike up front and I'm a big rider, could only imagine how much those would catch.
