I work on a lot of bikes, for myself and also for family and friends. I'm a big fan of Kool Stop brake pads. The thinline pads are designed for v-brakes, but work very well for classic caliper brakes on tight, classic frames. Personally, I prefer the salmon compound as I feel they stop better in wet weather. Also, not quite as messy on aluminum rims in wet weather.
