    What style of cleats do I need for my new clipless pedals??

    2013-06-04 10.19.03.jpg

    I'm a bit of a newbie to road biking. I just bought a used bike with the clipless pedals shown in the attachment. All my previous bikes have had toe clip pedals so I've never bothered buying bike shoes before. I know there are different styles of cleats, but I'm not sure which ones will fit these pedals. Because I will most likely be buying online I don't want to order the wrong ones. Can anyone help? Thanks!!!

    Those take Shimano or other SPD style cleats, such as these:
    http://www.amazon.com/Shimano-SH51-S...shimano+cleats

    There are a few different styles available offering different amounts of "float"or foot rotation on top of the pedal. That is a subjectve decision.

    Looks like a generic SPD style pedal. Wellgo maybe? Should work with Shimano SPD (Not SPD-SL) cleats. I think.

    Unfortunately, not all SPD cleats are the same. If you knew who the manufacturer was, it would help.
    Telemachus has, indeed, sneezed.

    Right. These are definitely not Shimano SPDs, but some brand that uses a proprietary cleat. A Shimano cleat might be close enough to insert and hold, or close enough to insert and give a sticky release, or close enough to insert but not release at all.

    For best results post photo of logo, or take pedals to a shop where they might be able to figure out what it is and order exactly the right cleat.
