I need to replace the ones on the wife’s bike. She mostly uses her bike as commuter (i.e. will ride any weather) so I need something doesn’t dissolve at the first sign of water. The only thing that I have heard is that the longer they are the better braking power you get. Being a commuter, I also don't want to buy the top of the range.

 

I have only ever used disk brakes and shimano 105 so this is a new area for me.

 

Cheers

Kool stop gets the most votes I'll say based on a similar post here:

Or take a look at some options here and their associated reviews:

I believe the "free shipping , no minimum spend " is still on.

Being a commuter, I also don't want to buy the top of the range.

- I used to think that way too until I eventually figured I spend more hours and kms per week on my commutes vs my weekend rides.

Thanks

And... brake pads are the one of the few things where saving money is not a priority. Skipping gears are an inconvenience. Brakes failing...
