Cantilever Brake Pads, are they dead? I need some

I actualy need some re-fills because I ordered V-brake pads on accedent. I've looked on Nashbar, performance and pricepoint and they only have V-brake pads. I googled and found tons of useless sites but still can't find what I am looking for.

You mean inserts or a full shoe with post? Kool-stop sells stuff for pretty much any type of brake, and Harris Cyclery (among others) carries it.

I recommend their BMX pads for any bike that has threaded posts.

Check online shops specialized in cyclocross bikes. You'll find plenty of choices.
