There aren't many of these around, so happy to use (and recommend) these. Very grippy too
Not easy to fit, but I blame the dated design!

ConsPrice of replacement pads
ProsLook good
They are described as 'Compatible with MTB/V brake type, Hybrid and Cantilever'. The fixing must be for a post type. There is a similar part for threaded type (22568). The pads are held securely by a small pin and two spare pins are supplied. They are clearly marked, L/R & front, including the back of the replacement pads. The black and red pads seem to be the same apart from the colour, there's nothing on the packing to indicate any difference. They look good on the bike, a nice shiny finish and the metal part makes the pad very stiff. Only downside is the price of replacement pads, it is cheaper per pad to buy these again!

Good Upgrade For Cantilever Brakes

ProsGood range of cartridges
There is very little choice of good break blocks for those of us limited to cantilever brakes, where as the V brake style of block have a very wide range. These are excellent for the price and were the answer to my prayers. With a softish rubber compound they have good bite and because they are cartridge type pads, the wear surface can easily be replaced with out having to disburb the precise and fiddley setup of the break shoe

ConsWill only fit Canti or some V-brakes so little market for them
ProsCheap and free extra pads
SJS Best price I could find for these on-line.
Plenty of choice of nutted V-style pads on offer less now of this post mount style.
I used these pads on my commute bike which has a pair of Dia-compe canti brakes. The stock pads were naff.
Fitting the clarkes increased the power by the bucket load.
Although there is now little need for pads of this type, if you want to spec up old brakes they are worth a go.
