Road Bike and ATB pedals/Speedplay with MTB(4 posts)

Road Bike and ATB pedals/Speedplay with MTBMGS
May 31, 2002 3:38 PM
I have always ridden with Speedplay road pedals and road shoes, but have a long ride with some buddies. I was thinking about using frogs with some MTB shoes, or perhaps putting Speedplay road cleats on some MTB shoes and using my Speedplay road pedals.

Has anyone put Speedplay road cleats on MTB shoes, or do they switch over to ATB cleats and shoes?

Thanks.

I use Time ATAC pedals on both my ATB and Road bike. My road shoes are too narrow and are too uncomfortable for long rides, so I switch to my ATB shoes. Not exactly Speedplay, but a similar concept. Works for me.

an option is Dominators with Frogs. my dominators + egg beater cleats are around the same weight as my R150s + X-series cleats. the drilling is completely different.

Speedplay pedals for MTB riding would also not work because Speedplays are very sensitive to dirt. Get any dirt on your pedal/cleat and you won't be able to clip in or out...

I like the Time mtb pedals...
