I'm wanting to put LOOK Delta pedals off my old bike onto a bike that doesn't have clip-ins. This is going to be a spare/trainer bike. But my regular cleats for my regular 5000 miles (8000 km) a year road bike are SPD-SL Will they work with the old delta pedals?

I hate to buy new pedals just for the spare bike. When shopping for pedals I read a comment that said he had done just that -- used his spd's on the delta pedals. I tried it out and they definitely clip in and I got them adjusted. But this was on the old trainer and not out on the road. I just don't want to have a problem when I'm out on the road 20 miles from home or having to make a sudden stop.

  • I'd say keep trying on the trainer, and if they clip and unclip consistently and you're comfortable, then and only then take them out on the road. Commented Jul 1, 2021 at 0:23

    Use the correct cleats for the pedals and vice-versa, as intended by the manufacturer, to avoid any problems. Using Shimano cleats on Delta pedals is likely to damage the cleats and you may run into problems with your road-bike. The worst case being failure to unclip.
