    need cantilever pads for old Hardrock

    I need some good brake pads for this bike:



    I have no idea about cantilever brakes. The brakes on that bike plain suck and the pads are really old and squeal like a pig. So some decent pads are in order. Is there some sort of standard for mounting them?

    Prefer something on amazon prime

    Also is it possible to convert it to V brakes? I don't want to do that right now as i just want to throw some new pads on it....however I may consider upgrading later on if I still dislike cantilever.

    First yes it is possible to convert it to v brakes. You would need a full v brake set, brakes and levers, and an additional piece. The additional piece us a bolt on cable stop for your top tube.

    As for cantilever pads, a good set of kool stop pads will work fine. Odd are what you have are rock hard and are no longer good stoppers.
