a friend of mine needs a pair of clipless pedals for the lovely wee concorde
bike that she just bought. i am totally out of touch with modern components
so could you recommend new ones around the £50 mark or even decent
second hand ones that can be used on modern shoes? oh and ideally
in red, for some reason!

thanks,

craig

On my 2011 Basso I use Shimano SPD's......pedals cheap as chips and easy (ish) to swivel out of but the shoes are a bit pricey and the sizes need care as the jap feet seem a lot smaller than mine :)

Shimano SPD's are a good intro into clipless and easily found for the sub £50 budget, I have found that shimano shoes seem to vary in width 'fitting' sizes dependant on model, The MT22 is fairly wide and of course there are other brands that are SPD cleat compatible. Crank bros. 'egg beaters' are good if you need more movement to alleviate muscular stress or into insanely long distance cycling (150miles+ in one go) my brother has moved over to egg beaters for both these reasons, he's doing the Fred Whitton this year.

I'm a big fan of Look stuff for road pedals:

High on Bikes is a good mail-order retailer too; used them a fair bit in the past and they've always been well priced and very efficient.

If you have an ebay account these would be perfect

If they must be red, then Look spring to mind.

Modern road pedals use a three bolt cleat mounting system with cleats specific to the pedals; ie different manufacturers use different cleats and one won't necessarily fit another, although there is some cross-compatibility with the leading types such as Shimano or Look.

Don't forget that LOOK ark standard pedals have their own cleats
and LOOK keo have their own type of cleat and they are not interchangeable.

WELLGO make cheap LOOK style pedals and do both versions.

thanks for all your suggestions, folks. she won these pedals on ebay
and i'm wondering what cleats go with them?

i was thinking perhaps these would work - ideally the ones that allow the heel to float
rather than the rigid type...any ideas?
