    The standard Kool Stop V-Brake insert will work with Shimano holders...the Tectonic pads look like they need the specific holder, but I do not now for sure.

    yes..i was reading the instruction and the diagram shows some sort of clip/retainer where the pin goes..bummer.. i just impulsed bought these because i wanted pads for the dry condition and heard that the salmon color was the one to get..i think i messed up by thinking all kool stop pads would just slide into my shimano brake pad holders..
    darn lol..thx..anyone else tried..:eekster:
