    Hmmm...as far as I know, old single-speed cruisers use a smaller thread size for the pedals and just about everything else should fit your pedals.

    Since you have them take off the old pedals and just try it. I hope she gave you some cleats also.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    They should fit fine. Of course you'll need shoes with the matching cleats installed to use them.

    Looks like

    If you,re looking to put those on that IRO build you posted about in 09 then they`ll fit. You`ll still need shoes and cleats.

    Personally I`ve never been a big fan of clipless pedals in the city - there are far too many ocassions you NEED to stop and put a foot down.

    I've never seen those pedals before. They seem like something Look tried many years ago that might be SPD compatible.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Don't to grease the threads. A little dab will do ya.
    Also, the left pedal is reverse threaded (as in righty loosey, lefty tighty)

    Need the exact right cleat from the French Look Company

    many companies make their pedals to use just their cleat, so that is not unusual.

    But the 2 bolt mount for the cleat to the shoe, should be SPD compatible.

    That's why SPD mountain style shoes and pedals exist. Not a problem.
