See the writing on the pedal body by the spindle? That should be where you'd see something. That or the end of the pedal spindle itself.

Its been awhile since I've looked at SPDs, so take this with a grain of salt.

SPDs are labeled with their series: 9XX is XTR, 7XX is XT, 5XX is LX, etc.

HTH,

I have the crank bros egg beaters on my MTB and I like them since you never have to look down or adjust the pedal, just clip on. I'm new to clipless pedals and I find these really easy.

Design based on the ATACs... Which is based on the SPDs... Which is based on Grafton Speed Traps... Which...

Anyone here remember Look mtn pedals? Had a guy come into the shop where I was working looking for a pair of cleats for em... Like you can find cleats for that in yer QBP catalog!!

So with the Crank Brothers type, I can use them on a roadbike right, or are they strictly MTN?

I also want to keep my shoes (Diadora with old spd holes), if I go to Crank Bros peds, will I have to change shoes, or just cleats?

Thanks

Look sponsored my team for pedals one (one) year when Colo got a huge amount of rain. We were racing in mud every weekend.

Worst atb pedals ever (with apologies to Onza).

pedals are universal. They'll fit any bike with the appropriate sized hole in the crankarm.

Shoes are fairly universal: there's only a few bolt patterns and mtn shoes all use the same one: SPD.

CLEATS on the other hand are specific to the pedals. Change pedals (outside of the SPD family) and you'll need to change cleats. ATAC cleats don't work on Candy pedals and vice versa.

I HAD a pair of OnZa pedals. Liked the 'no moving parts' thing. Next time we meet, remind me to tell you how I almost gave up on clipless 'cause of them!

Funny story now, but MAN! was I pissed at the time!

You can use virtually any pedals on any bike you choose.

Whether you should is a matter of fashion (and function to a point).

Your shoes might not have the bolt pattern for Crank Brothers. There were some initial quality problems when the egg beaters first hit the market because the bearings in the spindles were too fragile. Heavier riders were chowdering the bearings in a short time. I'd check to see if these issues were resolved before buying. I think they were resolved but I'm not certain. They look cool as shit.

I could probably dig up the pair I owned. They were the lightest in the day, with the shoes I had they only released by twisting in. Clipping out mishaps would have made for some hilarious videos.

I don't remember who I pawned mine off on. Hope they're still alive!
