Do these Ritchey SPDs take a standard Shimano cleat or their own ever so slightly different version?

Release can give slightly more resistance than with a ritchey cleat.

Its a bit hit and miss from memory. I had Ritcheys years ago, my mate tried with his spd cleats and couldn't get out without using a screwdriver :roll:

Had these Ritchey's and they work best with original Ritchey cleats, which are slightly different from "big S" cleats. But they are very hard to get :evil:

Shimano cleats work average, but sometimes can get stuck and let you go after trying again to step out. :wink:

Which of Shimano's cleats where you using (I've never used ritchey just trying to prise more info)

Older original styles or the current types.. also single or muli-release (unfortunately I'm too lazy today to look up the cleat numbers)

They're SM-SH 55, dont know what year, cause I bought them some time ago. IIRC they are multidirectional.
