i have a odyssey hazard light rim in black and have brakes with clear odyssey brake pads. the clear pads arnt supposed to take paint off my rim but after 1 day of riding it has already taken paint of my rim. i really don't want this to happen anymore so what can i do to stop it? Different brake pads?

once you get over the new-ness it won't matter
I kinda like my rim, makes a polished line


I ride to stay on two wheels and have fun!

I have clear odyssey pads and have almost zero brake wear on my red Demo Zeros.


I also had black rims without issue before the red ones.

That's the thing, you have PAINT, not ANODIZE. And if you were to have HARD anodize, then you'd probably get the least wear out of any kind of brakes.
