    Brake Pad Replacement for Tektro 'e' Brakes

    Time to replace the pads on my Soloist Team. It has the black 'e' Cervelo brakes on it that I understand are Tektros. I need to replace the brake pads. They look like Shimano pad holders to me so I assume any Shimano Ultegra or Dura Ace pad will fit. I'm thinking Kool Stop Salmon Shimano replacement pads might be a good call, I'm open to recommendations. I ride in 60/40 dry/wet in a mountainous area with Mavic CXP 33 rims.

    Tektro takes SRAM/Shimano pads, I would personally pass on the shimano pads and buy the Kool Stops like you mentioned or Swisstops.

    After closer inspection, it turns out the brake pads and brake pad holders are Kool Stops with black pads. I believe I am going to give the salmon pads a shot this time around.
