Cleats for Spin Bike

I'm taking a spin class and am wondering what kind of cleats I'll need for my shoes. I have Crank Brothers pedals on my bike. Will these work or do I need Shimano type cleats? The pedals on the bikes at the gym look more like Shimanos.

All the spin bicycles I've used have had SPD on one side and platform on the other.

The "spinning" pedals I've seen are usually Wellgo SPD-types. These work best with Wellgo cleats, OK with Shimano cleats. I don't think they'll work with Crank Brothers cleats.

the pedals on the spin bikes at my club used spds and platforms also. My spd cleats clipped in just fine.

Crank Brother's cleats will not work with your spin bike's pedals.

Shimano SPD cleats are your best bet.
