brake blocks....not sure fit!

Postby vdubnut2013 » Sat Jan 19, 2013 11:25 am

looking for new brake blocks for the racer. Got clarks blocks at the moment with a screw to hold in the blocks....are these shimano fit blocks?
koolstop salmons seem to get best reviews (swisstop best but a little out budget at the moment)
Cheers for any advice :)

Do you mean the rubber slides into a metal carrier and then has a retaining screw?

Or does the whole pad and backing plate bolt straight on?

What brake calipers are they?
Yellow is the new Black.

rubber block slides in and held with screw. Fitted to shimano duel piviots (non standard blocks hence confused)
similar to these ones
