    tektro oryx replacement pads

    I'm after replacement brake pads for the Tektro Oryx cantis - anyone know if/which koolstop pads fit (if any)? Looks to me like their V Type insert look about right (down to the pin) - but are they only for V brakes??

    Any ideas?

    v and canti pads are the same ime

    might be worth shooting an email off to them though

    I'm using Koolstop pads (salmon, if you're interested, although it makes no difference) with Tektro Oryx Cantis, and they seem to work very nicely, better in fact that the standard replacement Tekto pads.

    What type Chris? Is it the v-brake inserts?

    Yep, any V type cartridge pad will fit. I've had Fibrax, BBB, Shimano and Koolstop in mine.

    Cheers Chris. Those are the ones I ordered from Wiggle with fingers crossed. Also, my first order from France using Wiggle's Euro free delivery offer. Fingers crossed for that too!
