im going to setup some brakes soon and i have a few questions

which brake pads are the best out of eclat eggplants or odyssey slimbyfour? i am open to suggestions
and does having a good lever, like a monolver, make a difference to braking power?

I've had eclat pads and they were weird but I'm wanting to assume I got a defective pair. Odyssey slimbyfours are good from what I hear. I'm currently running fly zapatas and I really like them. I'm not sure about that but I like my monolever

get the odyssey pads, and as far as a lever, you just got to get what you like, some are made for 1 finger, 2 finger. etc.

The Odyssey pads are good, but the fly pads are better. A good break cable is more important then a good brake lever.(but I do like my Odyssey trigger lever)

The eastern lever feels good, I destroyed the housing eating shit, and I gave it to my cousin and it still brakes on a dime, and it's fucking cheap and rightly priced, so I'd get that for a lever.

Y brother had the eclats, but I have kool stops that work way better. As far as levers go, get a nice heavy duty one, they take a beating

I recommend an Ody Monolever and Ody linear cable. Not sure about brake pads

I have the Odyssey Clear pads, LOVE them. Loud as hell, but work amazingly on a Primo Balance rim in Black. No brake marks, been several months.

the odysseys last a long time as long as they are lined up and hit your rim square. Clear works on every rim color, and on chrome it grips it like crazy.
