I am new to road bikes. My pedals are 2010 shimano 105 - SPD-SL

Can spd shoes with spd cleats be used on spd-sl pedals?

  • No. Also, its pedal / pedals. – Batman May 6 '16 at 4:17

The short answer is no.

The SPD-SL 3 bolt pattern is larger by several centimeters.

An SPD shoe has tread to make it easier to walk in the show off-road and a smaller, 2 bolt cleat mounting pattern. The tread would be in the way of mounting the SPD-SL cleat.

    Why the downvote? Is my answer inaccurate or incomplete? – zenbike May 6 '16 at 12:31
