What kind of brake pad inserts ?

What kind of Shimano brake pad inserts do I need ?

Assuming that there are replaceable inserts rather than the entire pad holder assembly, what type of pads do I need to rebuild these ?

Rebuild? You're just replacing pads. Those are V-brake pad holders so any V-brake pad that works with your rims, meaning you don't want to buy the ceramic pads if you don't have ceramic rims. Kool Stop makes great pads too.

Bikes: too many bikes from 1967 10s (5x2)Frejus to a Sumitomo Ti/Chorus aluminum 10s (10x2), plus one non-susp mtn bike I use as my commuter

Plenty of choices, mostly fungible, though some are for specific uses, ie. with ceramic coated rims. Keep in mind that there are 2 main choices: inserts which slide into your holders, or complete shoes, where the entire shoe is replaced as a single part.

Search "V-brake pads" or if you're somewhat trusting about computer security use my link.

Thanks, Guys.
I have plenty of entire shoes to replace these units and was just curious about which inserts fit these specific holders...
The rims are normal Mavic Deore A319 alloy so I can stick anything on.

Did you not read the 2 posts replying to yours? No, you can't just 'stick anything on'. You need pads for aluminum rims. NOT ceramic. NOT carbon.

No, no,,, Not what I meant at all.

I meant that I can forget about looking for any insert and simply forget about what is on the bike now and stick on any of the rubber brake pads that will fit.
I have a box of good spares that all came off bikes with aluminum wheels until I get around to picking up some new ones..

In my opinion, for replacement cartridge refill pads, you should replace with Kool Stop V-Type (2) with the salmon pad compound.

Any ordinary rubber pads will work in this situation. Kool Stop salmon pads will work well.
