Recently bought a Triban 500 road bike which I'm very pleased with. The only slight problem seems to be the stopping power of the brakes isnt great. I've read that replacing the pads (koolstop/swisstop seem to be the most recommended) can make a big difference for not too much expense.
I'm completely new to this, and was wondering what the best way of doing this is. The stock brake pads don't have cartidge holders - is it best to fit cartridge holders to the bike and are these universally compatible or do i need specific ones for my brakes? Thanks
