I got these brakes last year. http://www.tektro.com/02products/11qb.php

They work well, but it's time to replace the pads - that, and I read that the stock pads on these are crep-tastic. A few folks believe that better pads will reduce the massive chatter I am experiencing as well.

So, which do I use to replace? Peeps say Kool Stop salmon, but the threaded, or those that say Canti?

The stock ones are cartridge style, I think. You can just pull the pins, slide out the crappy Tektro pads, and slide some salmon Kool Stops in. I think these work, but someone correct me if I'm wrong:

awesome - thanks Jason.
Yup, I have the same brakes and same pads. Works no problem. 10x better than stock black pads. And last longer too. Didn't notice any chatter difference, but they stop better.
