    STX-RC - who has a good memory!

    I have an older Giant ATX 760 that needs some refreshing...

    As it has original brake pads, I want to replace them. Being a bike mechanic noob, I have no clue what to replace them with. I looked in the forum and ebay etc, and the STX-RC Cantilever brake pads have horrible reviews - so I figured I should change the pads to something better. Kool Stop pads have good review, and well they sound kool, so was thinking I should switch to those... however I can't figure which ones would work with the STX-RC setup I have...

    My setup looks like this.

    from what I gather, M65T is the replacement pad that fits into these holders...

    Thanks for any advice, for anyone who remember what STX-RC components are...

    If it is anything like the stx-rc's that I had on my old performance m405 they will accept any post mount brake pad. Damn I'm old.

    Do they look like these?



    If so, they don't have pad holders as such. You replace the entire pad / post assembly and like slipfitting 2 says, any post mount brake pad will work. Swissstop made some good pads that were green and grippy. Ashima also make some multi compound ones.
