Best HS33 pads for a chrome rim?

7 posts in this topic

Currently running a vee with inspired pads on a polished spank stiffy, gonna make the switch to a Maggie as I need a bit more bite, what pads would work best?

I normally never get it right with pads so any advice would be great.

Did you polish the rim yourself? I've got a black Spank Stiffy on my bike and it's the worst baking surface I've ever had.

No I didn’t, I bought them that way. They were secondhand though so I’m not sure what state it was in before. 

It seems a bit lacklustre no matter what I do with it at the moment, so I’m going to try a Maggie to see if that sorts it!

I used to run a V with spanish flys (look the same as inspired)on a chrome bk in the day.better than any hs33 brake,but as soon as u get a bit of dirt on em they r shocking bad.get em off put em in boiling water clean em up.get the brake setup bang on(v arms hitting at vertical)try tht before u change the lot.
