I'm looking to freshen up a 60's Raleigh Sports that has the old standard brake blocks on it. If I able to put modern pads (http://www.koolstop.com/images/ks-bmxdl_art_lg.jpg) from a cantilever brake on it, as long as they physically fit the rims, will I run into issues with braking forces causing extra stress? Any issues with performance?
The bike is all stock with side pull brakes and levers on it. Wheels are original steel and seem to be true (not checked in a stand). Fork, frame, and wheels are in great shape.
Side note/discussion: Koolstop carries the blocks (http://www.koolstop.com/english/continental.html) as well marketed for such a bike, recommended or not?
