    clipless pedals

    Ok,I picked up a Miyata 914 and it has pedals intended for a special shoe. My question is what shoes? what cleats? are there any economical options?, I am just barely getting by ,So I can't just happily order something. what to look for on ebay etc.? Is there any way to convert normal cycling shoe?( I have a pair) the groupo is all Shimano 600 and the pedals say Shimano, they have a grey finish

    If it is a Shimano pedal, it would usually be SPD or SPD-SL. Do a google search and you will have your answers. There are plenty of economical options regarding shoes and cleats that will fit these pedal systems. However, if you are on a reallly tight budget, you can just replace them with regular platform pedals for about $10 or less.

    Pictures would help. Over the years, Shimano has used at least three different, mutually incompatible clipless cleat designs.

    They are probably the "600 Ultegra" version of Shimano "Look" style pedal:

    These use a "Look" style cleat and compatible shoe. If there were a bike co-op near you, I would be shopping for usable shoes- converting existing shoes is possible, but problematical. (What kind of "normal" cycling shoes do you have? Can you take a picture of the sole and post it?)

    I agree with Taga- you may be better off removing them and installing inexpensive platform pedals.
