I just bought Shimano PD-M545 pedals and Mavic Alpine All Mountain Shoes (links below)
I did do some research and "think" I got the best thing for me for the money I had, and that they work together, Bike radar says they are SPD type shoes. They seemed to look right.
They arrived today and I sat down to try and fit the cleats to the shoe. My problem is the 4 screws that came with the pedals are larger than the screw holes in the sole of the shoes. It almost looks like there is an inner screw hole in the shoe, (but I could be wrong). It doesn't seem like it should be a complicated process.. Have I bought the wrong shoes, being completely stupid or missing something?
Thanks for any and all help, (this is my first time with any clipless shoe).
