Hi. I waiting for the arrival of a bike with Tektro 316 long reach dual pivot calipers. I seem to remember hearing that the pads that come with these (fairly cheap) Tektros are pants. I'll be riding the bike through the winter and I want some decent stopping power.

So, my questions are:
1) Are they indeed 'pants'
2) What else would fit? I am right in thinking anything that isn't campag?
3) Was thinking swiss stop inserts /pads - any other ideas?

Thanks in advance
