24 Hours of Light - Whitehorse Yukon 24 Hours of Light - Whitehorse Yukon

That’s when I heard about Kool-Stop replacement pads for the Hayes hydraulic brake system. Competitively priced at sixteen dollars a set at Mountain Equipment Co-op in Vancouver B.C., I picked up a set and installed the pads in rear caliper of my rig. Here’s my initial impression and how to install them…
