looking a cheap pair of Shimano R540 SPD-SL Road Pedals for the winter bike. seen these for 20 quid. I run Look Keo Classics on my other steed. Will the same cleats work on both sets of pedals? i understand Shimano cleats use the 3 bolt design, at first glance looks very similar to the keo's



  • SHimano and look cleats are not compatible with eachother.

    I have the R540's, they came free with my TCr advanced Sl lol. I'd happily ship them to you free, honestly, with shimano, you either get the r540s and be fine with them, or get dura ace to look cool, there is barely a performance advantage inbetween :)

    BTW, i ride speedplays now, everyone else should too

    Thanks joshbortz. i will go for another set of Look Keo's then. i fancied the R540's as they are silver and would match the crank arms. sad i know.
