1990 Dura Ace clipless pedals

While I wait for my team miyata (THANKS MIAMIJIM!) . I'm wondering if the clipless pedals on this bike are SPD-SL compatible?

No, these are the original Look cleat compatible models.
I have the Ultegra equivalent.

i'm going to throw a dissenting opinion here--if they're Look compatible, in my experience they are SPD-SL compatible- i have been using the SPD's with 1rst and 2nd gen Look pedals without a hitch. i'd say yes they are, and worth a try.

^+1. Those pedals will work with either the old-style black or red delta Look cleats (not Keo). The red Deltas will give you some float, which is easier on the knees.

And if you really can't handle them, I'll trade you a couple of sets of Looks, or some Campy clip pedals...I've got some 6401's, some 1056's, and have had 7401's before, wouldn't mind another pair...at all.

I use the red Deltas, and only use the black ones for sprint tri's, when pain is expected.

fwiw, I picked up a couple sets of red Delta knock-offs on Ebay and they seem fine. One set was Wellgo I think and the other was a no-name Taiwanese product. They were both around $12 with shipping.

+1. I'd go with the reds, from what I an tell they're readily available.

I'm going to test out the compatibility with SPD-SL's since I have other bikes with those. It would be nice to not have to switch shoes per bike. I'm assuming that the compatibility would go both ways? I.E. I could get red delta cleats and use them on my spd-sl pedals?
