At the risk of stepping into the "pile-o-poo" that this thread threatens to devolve into, for those interested in at least a couple of contemporary perspectives on the relative merits of various vintage brake pads and who have not otherwise already found same, I submit for your consideration the following articles:

For whatever it may be worth, I should have a few more interesting "announcements" to post upcoming next week including the availability of dozens more similar technical articles and road tests culled from the likes of Bicycling and Bike World.
