    Call me stupid but i didn’t realise that the Shimano cleat system on MTB/Road bikes was completely different 😳 I’ve only(just about)got used to the MTB SPD pedals and now i’ve got SPD SL pedals on the road bike 😕 Whats everyone else using ??? I’ve had a quick look on Wiggle and all the Roads pedals on there with the same cleat as the MTB pedals i use are classed as touring pedals,i was wondering if its possible to get road shoes/pedals in the simple SPD style or am i best off sticking with the SPD SL combo i’ve now bought ???

    Standard MTB SPuDs on my off-roader and Look on my road one, both with ‘no float’ cleats.

    Vince, I use the same pedals and shoes on my road bikes as my MTB absolutely no problem.

    Double-sided (MTB) SPD’s on the cyclo-crosser, Trek MTB & the Dyna-Tech ‘commuter’/training bike (with Diadora shoes at the minute, but want another pair of Sidi’s)

    Look ‘Keo’ Sprint on the Ridley Orion (with Sidi Genius 2)

    I thinks thats something which would suit me,at least then i’d have more chance of remembering how to unclip when i came to a stop.I’ve just a had at look at the new shoes and they are SPD-SL, SPD and Look cleat compatible so maybe just a change of pedals so i’m using SPD’s allround.

    Well, if I were a hedgehog and someone glued me to their crank, I wouldn’t be happy either! 😉 😆

    The Whitechapel Cross was a bit of a ‘cloggy ‘event, as you can see from the images associated with that one!

    The Shimano single sided “touring” pedals work very well. More positive/strong connection than MTB ones with a bigger platform to spread the load.

    They are never going to be as good as a proper road pedal but then I’m guessing your not using Carbon soled roadie shoes either.

    Although…….

    If it’s really bad, I still have a couple of sets of ‘proper’ cyclo-cross pedals in the workshop

    The Lyotard 460D 😀 , complete with the ‘doubled-up’ toe-clips, and a pair of the old Sidi cyclo-cross shoes (blue/black, with the flap over the laces

    Retro, or what?

    It’s not a good picture, but these are the old style Sidis I’m referring to
