    Is there any reasons you can't use 'BMX' brake pads on a normal bike? They look basically the same - just a bit longer.

    Just that they are ugly and might be wider than the rim ?

    'Ugly'? Blimey. What a strange criterion. But apart from that it's just a question of width?

    The main question on my lips is - why?
