The pedals may come with the cleat, to be screwed into the shoe. Mine did, although they were standard SPDs.

Mmmmmm......I think some new pedals are in order! Razz

Pedals normally come with cleats. I've not had to buy any separately unless replacing worn out cleats.

universal I think. I learnt to my cost recently that one pedal screws on the normal way (clockwise) and the other screws on anti clockwise. If you already knew this sorry, if you didn't it can save you wrecking threads on your cranks, new pedals, breaking spanners etc Evil or Very Mad

hmm - can't remember, but would suggest when you insert your pedal into your crank you very gently finger tighten to see which is which. And don't overtighten the pedals on to the cranks either.

Just realised the above suggestion not v. helpful as you'll have to remove existing pedals first. D'oh.

Help please somebody....

They both go in the same direction, i.e., both go in the opposite direction to the pedal stroke. Is that in the same dierction?

Aaargh! Now you've got me started!

Err......best is to try and undo and, if it's too tight, try the other direction!

Sorry!

theory goes as follows.. since i cant remember either.

right hand pedal
pedalling motion looking from side is clockwise
this in effect is the crank arm spinning clockwise around the threaded pedal spindle....
which is equivalent to turning the spindle anti-clockwise
which conventionally would unscrew the pedal
which would be bad!

therefore i conclude the right hand crank has opposite handed threads to normal.. ie clockwise to undo & anti-clockwise to tighten.

same logic works for the left hand side but the other way round... where a conventionally handed thread is A-OK.

so right hand crank moves clockwise and thread tightens anti-clock so to undo rh peddle i undo clockwise

left hand is reversed
