Depends on your brakes. Call or e-mail Kool Stop. They'll hook you up with the right match.

If you are inquiring about the mounting method, Andy is correct (as usual). It depends on the type of brakes you are running. There are also different types if you want to buy a holder that takes replacement inserts vs replacing the entire pad. The holders are cheaper in the long run if you ride a lot, ride cross, or ride often in wet conditions.

If you are asking which compound (salmon vs dual-compound), the answer is also "it depends". If braking power has priority over pad life, then you want all-salmon. If you want something longer-wearing, then get the dual compound.

Thanks for the reply, wasn't referring to the mounting method. I need threaded for my cantis. However, several models seem to be threaded:
Mountain: https://sheldonbrown.com/harris/images/brk14.jpg

Supra2: https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/images/pr...)-IMG21069.jpg

Ordered the mountains. I think they should work.

I used Threaded Mountain pads for my Kona Jake 2012 which had Tektro Oryx and it fit fine and worked well. So I think it would work. But it was a little hard to place it on my bike as for the rear brake because the cantis when the cable is released opens too wide that since The Mountain Pads are long, it hits the upper butt of the frame.

Team race mechanics sawed off long tail V pad holders to let the wheel be swapped, inflated.
then the TW consumer companies made holders for short road pads,
with the long bolts .

If they don't come out inflated, and it's not a race, so time less critical,
or you only got one set of wheels anyhow, mend the puncture,
just wait ..after you put the wheel in, before pumping up the tires..
