      Comments about Nashbar Tourmalet Road Pedal Replacement Cleats:

      These are SPD cleats that can permit the use of road shoes with any road or mountain SPD pedal. I use my awesome Specialized Comp road shoes with my 220g Xpedo mountain pedals for an unmatched performance system that blows away the rediculously cumbersome and unsafe Look type and Speedplay road pedals. It is best to use the few road shoes that are drilled for both 3 hole and SPD cleats but Shimano makes the SH-85 adapter to convert 3 hole to SPD. Once you find the right cleat location, you can drill the shoe and eliminate the adapter which adds nearly 1/4" height. Road pedals IMO are just dangerous, especially Speedplay. If you need the float, use Speedplay Frogs which are much safer.

      Note that you must be careful using road shoes and these cleats when walking, take short steps and realize you don't have normal traction. Not as bad as Speedplay when walking but not as good as as Shimano road cleats which have better contact points. Bottom line is road shoes are lighter than mountain shoes and mountain pedals have better characteristics than road pedals. While many claim that road pedals are faster, this has never been proven so how much better could they possibly be? My experience has convinced me that all road pedals are inherently less safe and more cumbersome to use than double sided mountain pedals.

        Comments about Nashbar Tourmalet Road Pedal Replacement Cleats:

        I bought these cleats to use on my carbon soled Nike Poggio shoes. (Mountain bike SPD pedals are so easy to use I have them on all my bikes.) I wanted a cleat that would make walking less tippy. These worked! I compared the pedal interface surfaces to the Shimano cleat and these appear to be identical in every dimension within a fraction of a millimeter. They work in the pedals just like my Shimano cleats, but the pontoons give a touch better balance off the bike.
