Here are my pedals (from a 87 raleigh) :

And i have (new) shimano spd-sl shoes and cleats. Are these compatible, is there something missing off the pedals?

You need Shimano PD64 cleats and also the correct toe clips

Below are Dura Ace pedals and clips but very similar to your needs

Is it possible to remove your feet from the cages when you use these? I have a set and i cannot work out how to get my feet out! The tabs at the front seem to be the problem - once my largish feet are in they stay in and wife is not pleased as i have a bike attached to me for 3 weeks now!!!!!

Hints and tips appreciated.

Very difficult to find these cleats now, they occasional set pop up on ebay but they are usually expensive as the track cyclists use them and splash the cash when they are for sale

A Raleigh Century.....yum!

I'd be tempted to keep the original pedals on or buy these shimano style pedals!
Finding the correct toe clips and cleats will cost you a bomb - at least £50, where as these won't.............

I've used a set of those cheap toe-clips (albeit in shiny chrome) and they work ok without cleats.

same issue for me to try to find these :roll:

but actually, I wonder if it is wise as it seems the shoes with these cleats are very difficult to unclip - so failure to do so apparently resulted in quite frequent falls in the past :idea: :cry:
Using them with shoes with rubber soles with deep "sculptures" seems to be another option :idea:

Sorry i meant to say, the pedals work with the 3-bolt tri pattern toe clips & straps, with modern shimano SPD-SL v-shaped cleats. They clip in fairly tight, and are quite easy to remove the foot. I dont think i'd dare use the proper cleats for these pedals with toe-clips (very dangerous!)
