I have crank bros. Eggbeater 2 pedals. They came with two hole cleats. I need three hole cleats in a triangle pattern to fit my bike shoes. Is there such a thing and where can I get them.

  • While it’s possible I really don’t see a reason why you’d want to do it. You’ll get the disadvantages of both worlds plus higher stack height and weight.

  • Is N+1 just for bikes? Or is it time to buy a set of two-bolt shoes as well? Allows more time for shoes to dry if you have more pairs. Do we call this the "Imelda Marcos variation on N+1" ??

  • I know you're probably trying to avoid buying more shoes, but there are shoes that support both cleat types e.g Specialized makes a pair: specialized.com/ca/en/torch-1-0-road-shoes/p/155209 Apr 11, 2019 at 0:19

AFAIK three hole Eggbeater cleats don't exist - but - there are adapters for road shoes. I used to use this setup.

enter image description here

You can see the cleat is bolted to an adapter plate from the back. The plate has the 3-bolt pattern

The U-shaped thing on the left presses on the studs on the adapter plate and protects the cleat. I took it off so you could see the bolt arrangement.

Update: now I think about it I think the metal cleat is a special one that works with the adapter plate, not a regular 2-hole cleat, so the whole thing is really a '3-hole cleat'.
