|Does anyone make Metal Cleats for LOOK Roadbike Pedals? These plastic cleats don't look so good after walking up a steep road.... Just looking for something a little more durable than the Red Cleats I have now. Thanks!|

|Never seen any, and if they did, they would wear the pedals - think of a few rough metal edges rubbing on your nice looks.
Suggest you get some rubber cleat covers - they are only a couple of dollars, stop your cleats wearing down, and give you some grip to your duck-walk too. Just shove them in your pockets/bag when you are on the bike, and snap them on when you stop - sorted.

|Performance Bike sells them for $9.99.
|FWIW, I don't think they are still available...||madstork|

|... but I had a pair of metal (alloy?) LOOK-compatible cleats. Used them during the late '80's / early '90's. Don't remember how they performed, but they were more expensive than the plastic variety. I'm back on plastic these days, and the cleat covers are a good idea.|

|why not just get SPDs if you're gonna walk a lot?|| |
