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)

clipless noob question.

so i bought a bike that came with shimano pd-m747 clipless pedals and i was wondering if they would work with the rondel's. anyone have any input on if the pedals are any good. i immediately swapped them out for mks sylvans because i dont own any clipless shoes.

Those are SPD pedals, so they should work with the Rondel shoes.

They are the top end of Shimano's SPD line. I havent ridden that pedal but have the set just below the 747 and love them, so Im sure yours are very high quality as well.

Do you mean the mission workshop shoe? The Rondel? As far as the pedals, I ride with both road shoes and a more urban style shoe (i.e. mission workshop shoe) and I have the lowest model of the spd pedals to beat up. They work fine. Clipless are very fun and efficient to ride in. HAVE FUN
