Toe Spikes Help

Anyone know where I can get replacement toe spikes for Shimano M225 Shoes? I searched the internet and found nothing.

AFAIK, soccer or football shoe spikes will fit. Should be able to find them at the local ball sports place for a lot less. Or, get some M5 bolts and washers from your local hardware store and make you own custom length to suit - that's the thread size you need. Doing the latter I have found usually lasts longer, and they don't tend to break off as easily either.

Hmmm, I'll have to try the DIY approach.

My LBS carries spares. Maybe yours does too?
