    Tell me folks? Best ones? Recommended ones? or stick to the plain old Brompton ones?

    The supplied have only lasted 3 months. Which isn't bad in the scheme of things, but maybe there's better?

    I use Swissstop - much better.

    And fit straight in.

    I use Koolstop Salmon on the front and black on the rear. They also fit straight in. Softer pads better for rim wear and wet weather.
    I use the same combo on all my road-bikes.
  4. I use Fibrax Xtreme on mine, front and back.

    My originals didn't last long at all. In fact it was such a short amount of time, I hadn't even got to the stage of checking them.

    When I did they were pretty much on the metal. :blush:

    My money has gone on the Koolstops.
    Cheers all.

    I use the blues... I'm sure they're meant to be the wet weather versions.

    Note to the wise though, it looked like they come in packs of two, so I bought two lots.

    They come in packs of four...

    Still, I've got some spares ready to go.
