Is there a speedplay adapter for Carnac elipses or does a speedplay cleat use a look or some other adapter?
thanks

Speedplays come with an adapter with mounting holes identical to the LOOK pattern. Mount this adapter (with a bit of blue Loktite on the bolts), then screw on the Speedplay cleat. One of the great things about Speedplays (and their float) is you don't need to be as precise when mounting the cleats.

Although Carnac reccomends a specific adapter to run speedplay pedals it is possible to use the cleats without any adapter plate at all. This will net you closer to the spindle.

There is a specific adapter plate for Speedplay - it replaces the base of the Speedplay cleat (the curved section) - you screw the top part with of the cleat - the part which retains the spring and is covered by a metal plate - directly onto the adapter - works great!
