    Looking for new shoe cleats

    I have been looking for new cleats to go on my old Diadora road shoes. The original single bolt cleats are long gone. Changed to Time pedals in 85' and untill now haven't really cared. Now I have a couple bikes with full groupos, NR, Superb pro, and other quill pedals. I would love to ride some of these bikes with the pedals but can't find any cleats. I have four sets of shoes, one for Speedplay, one for Look, one for Time, and one for Spd-R. I did find Yellow Jersey cleats but feel $30 is a little much for two pieces of plastic and four screws.
    Does any one have another alternative?
    Has any one made a set at home? How?
    All my shoes are Look compatable and only one is Spd-R.

    Alan, can you provide a photo of the type you need? I have a few one-bolt Duegi cleats that might work.

    You might be able to make a slot by building up material with something such as Shoe Goo. Then cut the slot. A friend of mine did that for a long tour he took, and he said it worked out great.

    I think I may have some old cleats in my junk bins. I'll take a look. Please email me to nudge me.

    Or maybe your local shoe repair can fashion something for you! A lot of those guys are pretty clever.

    Alona and shoe 002.jpgBest picture I could do. The cleat front end would slid into the slot and the back end was screwed down in the back hole. You could slid the cleat around in the indented area.
    Thanks DD and noglider for the help.

    Doesn't someone make a slotted cleat that will screw onto the 3-bolt LOOK set up? I thought there was...

    Alan, your shoes are drilled for both a one-bolt and three-bolt (LOOK) pattern. I have a couple sets of white GV cleats with the tab (for the slot) and they're one-hole. I'll send one set so you can make sure they fit - can't tell scale-wise from the pic, but it seems that the hole in the sole of your pictured shoe might be too far back.

    If they fit, let me know - I'll send the other pair. PM me with your mailing addy and these will go out this week.
