Where do you buy Kool Stop brake pads?

Neither Performance nor Nashbar seem to carry them.

So far I've only found 'em at my local REI. Both of my LBS don't carry them.

Places like REI, nashbar and some LBSs round here have the red or black ones.
But I have only found the Salmon ones at Harris.

The mail-order places never seem to have the salmon ones, which is the color nearly everybody wants. I go to my LBS, and they order them for me-

I go to these guys for all my misc small part needs. They have the cable ends I like...no swells or bulges...super clean looking.

Oh, and they even have leather helmets for those of you who want to look like a true retro-poseur.

They might not know it, but they do. It's an item from the QBP catalog to which almost every bike shop in the country has access.

Koolstop needs a better way of differentiating to the consumer which pads are for v-brakes and which are for roadie style sidepulls.

I know i'm confused as hell.

These look neat. But I'm with Operator, I don't know which ones to get. Would the aforementioned work with a Fuji Touring bike?

Thanks for the help!

Those are made for Shimano road brakes. That Fuji has Tektro V brakes.

I've ordered tires from Bike Tires Direct twice. Both times they sent the wrong tires. I got the right tires three weeks later after sending back the wrong tires at my own expense, but I did not get an appology. I won't be buying from them again.

Sorry, I just needed to vent.

Yeah, their site is horrible. Navigation is a nightmare, and they still don't really differentiate it on their website at all.

There is a non-cartridge V-brake version.
