Default Re: brake wear on rim

Wouldnt be a good thing at all.. maybe the old style brake pads were better in this regard, the type that you could see rubber wearing down to the metal that holds it in place. The brake pads that we use nowadays is bigger and grippier, but you cant see the damn metal thats in the middle of the rubber and when it contacts the rim edge, you know that its grinding the rim edge away.. ouch!
