I've got Shimano Deore XT U brake BR-MT61 chainstay cantilevers on my Grove Tandem as the captain's rear brake.
Any one know what can be used there for pads?

If you indeed have a U brake, any road brake replacement shoes, available at any LBS will fit. Make sure you ask for the red Kool-Stop shoes, as they are very good stoppers, and easy on your rims.
