Don't worry, you can still get your hands on the classic Koolstop Continental Brake Pads, that company's conventionally designed product. These pads are an excellent choice for older bikes or brake systems with clearance problems, mostly because of their short size. They work great on city bikes and/or bikes with steel rims. Feature-wise you'll find an internal 'backbone' in this pad, and a Nyloc retaining nut. And while the pad is short, it's quite thick and will be around a while.
I recently purchased a 1985 Batavus Competicion that needed a bit of love to be roadworthy again. The pads needed to be replaced but finding ones that looked like they were period correct was tough until I went to Jenson USA and found the Koolstop pads. They look great and work wonderfully... Couldnt be happier!
I installed these brake pads on both front and rear brakes on a 1970s 10 speed that I converted to an urban cruiser. The bike has steel wheels and these salmon pads are recommended for steel wheels. They are easy to install if you have the requisite knowledge and tools. They kind of have an old school look to them, but they definitely function nice and smooth.
