I’ve recently started using my “good” carbon wheels more since the weather is improving. I’ve only ridden them three or four times, and both wheels seem to pulse under braking, almost as if some sections of the rim have more friction. I’m 100% confident the brakes are set up properly.
I’m using the manufacturer’s brake pads, which are apparently the only pads you can use, but they leave a ton of blue residue on the rim that is almost impossible to clean off.
Has anyone had this issue with any carbon wheels and managed to solve it? I’m thinking a swissstop eraser to clean the rim properly and a set of their yellow prince pads might be on the cards despite the manufacturer’s warnings.
