I'll post this in the wanted section as well but am looking for a U.S. source for a set of real cork brake pads for my Bianchi. Thanks, Shawn

I don't know if Cerchio Ghisallo have a U.S. dealer/importer, but they sell them to go with their rims (from Italy).
Alternatively, they're incredibly easy to make, and you can also enjoy the contents of the bottles they come with.....

Do they stop better?
Heck if I know. I don't have any bikes with wooden rims. I have made leather brake pads for a few people, but have not heard back whether they were any good. I am pretty sure no one died while evaluating them. Leather has to be a lot tougher than cork, and will last longer; but I have no opinion whether they stop the bike better.
