I'm after some replacement brake pads for my Tektro 356 dual pivots, but all the pads I've seen are either Shimano or Campag types. Can Shimano type pads be fitted to Tektro brakes? Or do I need to replace the entire block and not just the pad?



  • The shimano pads will fit or koolstop though they are tight.

    Aztec ones are very good, you should just be able to replace the insert though as Wooliferkins said they can be a very tight fit.
    Rule 64:

    Cornering confidence generally increases with time and experience. This pattern continues until it falls sharply and suddenly.
  • Thanks, I got some Shimano ones and they fitted fine.
