Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

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



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.

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.
