Hi. New to cantilever brakes but have come to the immediate conclusion that the stock pads on these tektro brakes are lousy.

They are 55mm cartridge but just wondering if I can put on a set of 72mm instead, some kool stops? I can't see why this wouldn't work providing I get the new cartridge as well. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Any standard vee-brake shoe will work

    I put some Ashima 4function vbrake shoe/pads on my tektro canti's. Much better than stock, and you can adjust the toe in too.
