    Will these work with Look cleats?

    I've got three sets of Look pedals kicking around from bikes I've parted out etc, and I decided to try clipless. One set is a rather nice Campag pair, and I'd like to put them on the road bike I use for long fast rides. I don't want to drop a lot of money on shoes at first, in case I don't like it, so I was please to pick up a brand new pair of ex display Specialized shoes recently for around $10. However, when they arrived, they were both right shoes, and the seller is being an arse about refunding (he'll only do it if I return the shoes, which will mean I've spent more in shipping than I paid for the damn shoes).

    So, I've got Look pedals, Look cleats that I bought, but no shoes. I'm hunting eBay for some cheapies, and
    I saw these. They come with SPD cleats and pedals, but having all these Look pedals, I'd rather switch the cleats out, if I can. Can it be done?

    It, eh, appears, that LOOK cleats will work fine with those. MTB specific shoes should be the only type that will give you trouble.

    It looks like they've got three holes in a triangle formation, that's the standard LOOK mounting method. At the very worst, you'll get to try clipless with shimano's instead.

    obviously it's been said, but yeah those'll work. just a thought, if it matters, i had a pair of shoes similar to that and i hope you plan on using them in warm weather, because they are thiiiiiiiiiiin and my feet chilled really easily.

    Cheers my little droogies. And yes, I'll most likely be using them in warm weather. I can't bring myself to do long training rides when it's freezing.
