There's also Kool-stop "Thinline", non-cartridge for v-brakes. I've got some in salmon, ordered them through my LBS. And you can get the cartridge pads in all colors, not just dual compound, through your LBS.............Those beefy dual-compound "mountain bike" pads shown above are also available in an all salmon version (not dual-compound), maybe other colors too, I don't know. Again, you'd probably have to order through your LBS to get them, though. And the dual compound "mountain bike" pads, as shown above, are available from Price Point, but they're not black/salmon, they're black/red. I couldn't tell from the photo on Price Point's website, so I called and asked them not long ago. It just seems to me the best selection of Kool-Stops is available through your LBS, and they will probably have to order them through QBP for you. My LBS gets them in two to three days for me-

Strange, my LBS uses them as their first choice when someone asks for new pads installed.
