Brake Pad Replacement on old caliper brake mountain bike
I am trying to refurbish my wife's bike to do grocery store runs. It is a 12-year old mountain bike that is in good shape. The only real problem that I am having is getting the brake pads replaced. The bike uses Caliper brakes. I know road bikes use calipers, but I don't know if the brake pads for a road bike will fit on calipers designed for an MTB.
The wheelset is 26 x 1.5", and the only sticker I can find on the brakes says Vanguard. Sorry I don't have pictures, but the pads are screwed into a long slot on the side of the caliper.
If there is any necessary information that I have left out, please let me know, and I will do my best to provide it.
