Possibly a dumb question :(

Do road clipless pedals and MTB clipless pedals have the same thread/axle diameter?

Got a Specialized Sirrus and want to get some clipless pedals online.

  • Yes, they do. I think it's all standard.

    Yes, but don't buy kids pedals, they have a smaller diameter spindle.

    Make sure that you put some grease on the threads of the new pedals before they go on the bike (or you'll never get them off again!).

    Good point! A small tube of copper grease is only a couple of quid from decent car supply shops, but it'll save you a fortune in spanners, drill-bits and knuckles when you come to remove them.
