Hello fellow CXers.... this is my first post on here!
So i got myself a set of carbon wheels with carbon brake surface for the season this year... and a peculiar thing dawned on me today. What happens to a carbon brake surface when racing in muddy conditions? So for those of you who has experience racing on carbon wheels- is the rim wear a legitimate concern? I know what mud and dirt can do to disc brake pads- i've burned through a set of pads in an hour in some muddy mountain bike races, so i can imagine that it has significant effect on rim and brake pads.
Are certain brake pads better then others? And i guess while we are on the subject- what is your favorite brake pad for carbon rims (in terms of braking power)? So far i have an option of choosing between the carbon specific pads that came with my TRP brakes and cork pads that came with my wheels.
thanks for your help,
