    A little more advanced.

    The Shimano SH51 SPD Cleats offer four degrees of float, and more experienced riders will typically prefer these over the Multi-Release SH-56 cleats. They take a bit more to get unclipped, but the added security in rough terrain is a worthy tradeoff.

    • Four degrees of float
    • Slightly greater release angle than Multi-Release Cleats
    • Not compatible with older, M858 pedals
    • Item #SHI0341

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    SPD mountain cleats seem to last forever, or at least a few seasons, but they'll wear out before a set of pedals. That's where these come in. These singe-release cleats are what come stock with your pedals, so you won't be in for any surprises.

    It's a great cleat

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've never known anything besides SPD cleats/shimano pedals, but they work great so why mess with perfection. The cleats are basically indestructible. Also, the ability to adjust the tension on the pedals is a huge plus.

    Why stray from the best?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I first used SPD pedals on the mountain bike in 1990 and they were such a big step forward compared to toe straps. I never looked back and I have used clipless pedals on the mtb ever since.
    I did try another brand pedal to shed a little bit of weight, but Shimano SPD's are just simply better. Adjustability, stiffness and a large platform.
    A big plus are the cleats, which last for ages and do not need to be replaced as often as the competition.

    Can't go wrong with SPD

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    What can I say? It's the classic SPD mountain cleat. They have bit of side to side float to keep it easy on the knees. They last a really long time too. I've got a year of regular riding on my current pair and despite showing some signs of wear they still clip in and out easily whilst retaining that signature, secure SPD feeling when clipped in. I much prefer SPD to Crank Brothers or Time because the feeling on the pedals is more secure while still maintaining easy of entry. There's no question when you clip in either because there's always a definite "CLICK."

    I'm stuck, to my pedals

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After many months of using my old cleats and wearing them down from clicking in, hiking around to scout lines, or jsut hanging in the parking lot it was time to replace my old cleats. These things happen, luckily some bike parts aren't as expensive as others. I also like to keep an entire cleat/bolt/slider set up in my pack on rides, if you lose a bolt it can end a ride in a really unfortunate yet preventable way.

    New shoes = new cleats

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These cleats last a long, long time. I don't usually move them between shoes so when I get a new pair of shoes it's time to get a new pair of cleats. Be sure to use grease when installing them, and don't over torque them. Doesn't hurt to carry a spare one in your tube wrap or hydration pack in case you lose a bolt or entire cleat on your ride.

    Best Pedal/Cleat Interface

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    To me, these cleats are part of the best interface for 2 bolt (MTB) configurations. They enter/exit reliably and predictably, and the cleats themselves tend to last longer than others I've used.

    works 100% of the time... every time.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There really isn't much you can say. I've got spd pedals on my touring bike and (until i upgraded to spd-sl) road bike.

    Lots of miles, even holding up to some decent walking. One caviat, my older set of spd pedals the spring started to get worn and I was able to pull my foot out of them straight up (not normal release) on some climbs... however that has nothing to do with these cleats.

    Best for commuters

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are incredibly easy to install, and are super dependable. Pair them with Chrome's Truk SPD shoe (link below) for a setup that provides minimal to no clicking (depending on walking surface), and a shoe that is comfortable enough to use all day, on and off the bike! No more carrying extra shoes and having to switch back and forth all day!

    Does this cleat set include the plate. I recently bought the shimano shoes for my girlfriend and these cleats and neither came with the plate for the screws from the cleat to screw into.

    how do i replace the plate in my shoes that the cleat screws into? i stripped the threads, and the cleat ripped out.

    I bought the WM61 shoes for spinning class at my gym. would these cleats work for my shoes and my class? the bikes are SPD compatible, would these cleats be enough or would i need to buy another piece?
