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

Any standard nutted show will work.

You now have one piece shoes without curved washers which allow adjustment of toe-in. You can buy another similar set, or a one piece with curved washers, like a Kool Stop Thread Eagle. Or if you ride a lot and expect to keep this bike, replacing many shoes over it's lifetime, you can buy shoes with metal holders and slide in replaceable pads. This will cost twice as much now, but pay for itself with less costly inserts over time.

BTW- there are also differences in pad material. Kool Stop salmon pads, and similar, are grippier and work better in cool or wet weather conditions, while standard black pads are harder, and last longer especially in hot conditions.

Between brand, style, and pad material, you now have about 100 possibilities to choose from, all of which will fit.

Yes those will be good replacements but the 'cross' type might be better since they are closer to the size of your current pads. they can go on most any brake system and once you install and get then toed just right it is easy to replace the 'blocks' when they were.

Also you need to be careful with pads that are longer than your originals because sometimes the bump on the fork or stays.


I do not ride in the rain often but I find these daul compound pads work pretty well in the dry and sometimes stop a squealing wheel

There is a slightly more compact road version but tend to use these more often. Also I use the matching cantilever style so I only need to keep one type of block on hand for spares.

thanks. I replaced with kool stop with pad inserts. They fit fine. Plus, they are now angle adjustable so I can toe in.
