Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Shimano PD-A550 Pedal Question

What is the purpose of the raised metal area found where the clips meet the pedal? Can any shoes be used with these pedals? I hope this makes sense.

if i understand you correctly, that's the metal plate that holds the clips on, not any sort of clipless cleat or whatnot.

yeah can get a cleat that fits under the "arms" of that plate.. I think business cycles has em, but you've gotta be nuts to use clips and cleats on the street.
