    New Enve 7.8 - Pad Toe-in Required?

    Hey all,

    I'm finalizing the setup of my new Scott Foil build and wondering if I have to toe-in the brake pads. I'm running the new Enve 7.8 carbon wheels with the knurled brake track. Will this specific brake track eliminate the usual braking noise that plague certain carbon wheels?

    Thank you

    You will find a new noise from the brake track - everyone knows you are braking.

    I've never "toed in" for either carbon or aluminum rims.
    I experience minimal noise and no chatter, unless rims or pads get dirty, or have a film or "glaze" on them.

    Scrub clean the surfaces with soapy water and the rough side of a "teflon safe" kitchen scouring sponge.

    Any "toed in" brake pad is going to wear down flat anyway -- I don't see the point.

    I think it's one of those archaic practices, like "'tying & soldering" wheel spokes.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    Well I have 2 sets of enves with the new track and don't find it that annoying. My friend has a set of 4.5s that are insanely loud .. rather happy mine don't sound like his.

    I've had the Enve pads working fine and relatively quiet for months and now they are really squealing on the front pair.
