I've not bought pads or blocks for cantilever brakes for many a year as I use disks.

However the missus needs some replacement blocks for her trek.

The bike carries some weight so decent pads are required and the cheapos arnt cutting the custard.

What do you recommend?

I could be mistaken, aren’t Avid Single Digit 3 V brakes and not cantilever?
I would be looking at Kool Stop or Swiss Stop.

Ahh I have a set of those in the spares box. What are the different coloured Inserts all about?

Am I correct in thinking you set them up slightly toeing in?

Carbon fibre... LMAO!!!
I wondered about the insert colours too. It seems the only difference is in colour. Neither is longer lasting or better at braking than the other.

I've very slight toe in on mine. I just slapped a bit of cardboard in at the trailing end and tightened the nuts. Haven't hit anything so far.
