    95 stumpjumper brakes

    I just acquired a 95 stumpjumper and want to get rid of the harsh brake pads and replace them with a softer pad.I have bought 2 different pads and neither work.The last one is a koolstop Dura-Type,and it is too short.The shoe is a shimano with a screw to hole the pad.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Knowing what brakes the bike currently has would really help, high end MTB from mid 90's would stay stock for a very short time, back then everything was changed and change often, brakes especially, those were the last days of CNC parts & entering 1996, the first of V-brakes which were a must have back then.

    If you are after Koolstop & the bike still has the stock brakes, would be looking at these Kool Stop International - High Performance Bicycle Brake Pads Since 1977

    Koolstop Dura pads are for road bikes, and won't fit.

    The pads are original with the asbestos replaceable shoe,which is held in with a small screw.Is there any pad that will fit this shoe,without replacing the entire pad? I have found the pads which you referred to,but I was hoping that I could keep the original shoe and just replace the pad.

    Shimano M system cantilever brake pads, although not sure where your getting the asbestos from, maybe in the 1950's, but not in the 1990's

    I assumed they were asbestos,as they looked like car brake shoes.
