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)

Campy Pedals Require Cleats?

I keep reading about cleats being worn with these type pedals, are they necessary? Or will I be fine with Chucks?

Thanks

They do not require cleats. You'll be fine with regular sneakers.

But they are very little surface area and in chucks that may be somewhat less then comfortable.

Thanks. I bet they'll be more comfy than my current Shimano 600esque pedals that require cleats.
