Hi

I commute each day to work and getting sick of slippery stock pedals and runners.

I am checking out this combination - I love my bike and happy to pay a bit more on these items. I just want to be able to walk short distances and enjoy the benefits of cleats. I also have a race bike and used to SPD-SL shoes.

I think they go together but they are both MTB - will this be ok for a courier style, single speed bike?

THANKS! :D:D:D

    yep both SPD so compatible. A lot of people use SPD on road bikes over SPD-SL, especially when commuting, as they are easier to clip in and out of and easier to walk in given the recessed cleat

  • awesome - thx dude

    I have seen people use the shoes but was not sure the pedals would be a good fit - just in terms of the fact they are technically MTB pedals

    I did not know if they would be too bulky or wrong in any way
