Question regarding replacement pads for TRP cantilever brakes...

I have TRP EuroX cantilever brakes on my cross bike. Does anyone know whether Kool Stop road pads, either Shimano or Campagnolo, work with these brakes?

Thanks.

Plain post types should do ,, eagle claws may be a bit long, but Pro Mechanics are not above sawing them shorter so they clear fork blades to open for tire changes..

Got more time they have a version that the pad comes off the post,
without changing the adjustment.

fietsbob,

It is my understanding that the pads on my brakes are of the "cartridge" type. I only have to replace the rubber part, not the entire holder w/ post as well. Perhaps I am mistaken or misreading the TRP website.

The post/holders on my brakes are already excellent. As posted above, I just want better rubber inserts.

Kool stop replacement inserts are patterned after other people's holders.. I got some for my 70's campy side pulls ,
they have Shimano like ones too..

the angle adjustable holders may be worth a try .. I put Scott-Mathauser inserts in my Modolo cross brake's holders
years ago,
then tweaked the post a little by bending it in the holder, for toe in .. ..
