    replacement brake pads

    I am thinking of picking up some SwissStop brake pads (pads only - no holders). Will these pads fit into the SRAM brake pad holders that came with my bike?

    iirc, the supplied pads for SRAM brakes are in fact SwissStop. FlashPro pads should fit in.

    as long as they're shimano/sram compatible pads, yes...they'll fit. campy compatible pads obviously won't fit. and yes, the green pads that come stock in sram brakes are made by swissstop.

    Personally, for alloy rims I think the SwissStop pads are expensive and not really worth the money. Koolstop work every bit as well if not better, and are also much cheaper. Try the Koolstop dual compound.

    or the Yokozun/Scott Matthauser - they are a little narrower than the Koolstops, which is nice if your braking surface is also narrow. I run Koolstop on my HEDs and Y/SM on my Ksyriums.
