Does anyone make ordinary cleats ( for quill pedals ) that attach to the 3-hole Look pattern holes on modern shoes ?

Those look neat Lysander but my shoes are Look pattern only.

Phew , Dromarti are a bit expensive for a couple of bits of plastic. Nice to see that they are made though , I did think the screw holes of the Look design would be too close to the pedal slot. Now I've seen a few types it's off to the shed ! :idea:

Ahhh, I see! The look pattern is three bolts, but the the paired bolts are wider than the spd pattern on the ones I have.......... :wink:

Ye should indeed be able to bodge up a set- metal baseplate bent to form the flange/slot bit and hardwood for the 'ramp'. I bet Old Stylee roadies made them like that in days of yore! :)
