Sidi five shoes and SPD cleats

Postby TheLBJ » Wed Dec 19, 2012 8:38 am

Thanks to Santa, I'll be getting a pair of Sidi five shoes next week.

I run Shimano SPD pedals - I've read a bit that the Shimano bolts may be too short for the Sidi shoes, and that longer screws may be required.

Since I'll probably be in the mood to head out for a morning ride on Xmas day, I'd like to be prepared for this - does anyone have any experience with Sidi shoes and Shimano cleats?

I recently purchased some second hand Sidis that came with SPD cleats attatched and I'm pretty certain the screws were short. I use Speedplays and the instructions that come with the shoes state short ones. Can you google a Sidi manual that would tell you?

I just used the screws that came with the (Shimano) cleats, worked fine.

Nice Santa!!! :mrgreen: I love my Sidi shoes!
