Got a set of old(er) school Shimano XT v-brakes on a 1998-vintage Trek 8500. These are the XT setup with the parallel linkage between the brake arms and the pads. The pads themselves appear to be of a cartridge design. Thought I read "BR-M730" "735" or "739" stamped on one of the arms.
Want to step up to some new pads, but am not sure if a particular size pad is required. These always looked real slim compared to the LX v-brakes on another Trek I owned.
Is a special size pad required?
