After getting some advice a couple weeks ago, I decided it would be good to do something about my substandard brakes.
I cleaned my rims, replaced both my brake cables and installed Kool Stop brake pads on the front.
The first time I stopped, I thought my front fork was going to collapse underneath me. The sharpness went away quickly, and the stopping is now smooth and much more effective.

Be careful the first time you use them in the wet; it takes a couple of rotations to wipe the water and crud off the wheels before the brakes really start to bite, but when they do, you'll know about it!
I just put on the same Kool Stop brake pads when I replaced my totally worn rear pads. I like em!
They're worth the extra couple bucks.
