I need better brakes for my commuter for the winter. Kool Stop salmons are in my future. However, here's my problem.... The stock pads are non-replaceable shoes (Tektro road brakes). I was able to find the Kool Stops with the setup like I have, but we're talking $25/set ($50 total). That's nuts, considering the pads are $6. So I'm wondering if anyone out there has some old road brake shoes (pad holders) sitting around in a parts bin.

I even looked to get a cheapie set of compatible shoes/brakes, and just trash the pads and replace them, but they are all $25-$30 per set.
