    Sampson Pedals? Can Anyone tell me what these are?

    Should be early 90s I think. What kind of cleats does this take?

    Very hard to walk in the cleats, if you find some.

    Those were the first clipless pedals I used. I came across my first pair a couple years ago and sold them on eBay. Not going to retire on the proceeds. The Speedplay Pedal Museum has this picture:

    also the cleat-pedal interface had zero "float" so these were also very hard on the knees of people who need some amount of float (I was one). The brief time I used a pair kept me gun-shy of clipless pedals for quite a long time cause my knees took so long to recover.

    I had a pair like that in 1991-92 time frame. Fell over trying to unclip 3 or 4 times. I'll dig around in my old parts closet tomorrow and if I can find the clips they're yours, but it will be a long shot if I still have them.
