    Nashbar spd cleats same as Shimano?

    I bought some shimano m424 pedals off ebay but, they didn't come w/ the cleats. Nashbar has replacement cleats that are about half the cost of the Shimano cleats. They sure do look the same in the picture. Are they the same?

    SPD = SPD, or they wouldn't be SPD. You are safe.

    Not so fast grasshopper. SPD is often used to refer to the two point mounting system. Also, Shimano has had several iterations of cleats.

    It looks like you can use the SH51, 52 or 55 cleat according to the
    PDF

    If these are the Nashbar cleats, then they are actually Wellgo 98A cleats, which are SH51 knockoffs.

    A little googlin can go a long way for ya

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    dobber's got the good 411. I believe most of nashbar's pedal selection is Wellgo's rebadged. My Rodeo pedals even have screws in them with Wellgo stamped in them.

    As long as it is compatible with the m-51 cleat you should fine. That's kind of the standard cleat. It's probably the Wellgo 98a rebadged, which I have and have used it in a number of Shimano SPD pedals.

    I wouldn't count on it, I tried getting some cheap pedals for my wifes Mtn bike from Nasbar, they were described as SPD pedals, but shimano cleats didn't fit.

    I'm suddenly humbled!

    I always thought SPD, SPD-R etc were the only differing models.

    I've had and used a mix of Nashbar and Shimano for a while - 3 or 4 pedal sets and several cleats from both mfr's / sources and never had an issue, which is why I pulled the trigger on that ansewr.

    Guess I just got lucky?

    Sometimes the grasshopper is quick enough to grab the pebble.

    When I bought my cleats, my LBS told me that you can use Wellgo cleats with Shimano pedals but you can't use Shimano cleats with Wellgo pedals. I wasn't sure that I believed him, but I am using Wellgo cleats with my Shimano pedals.
