    Im a bit tight up after buying my new bike, but I seriously need some clip pedals and shoes to replace the crappy standard pedals and trainers combination.

    I was looking at the DHB road shoes...
    HERE

    They say that their shoes are compatable with ALL clip pedals, but just to confirm, would the above shoes be able to fit any of the following pedals...

    Time Xen Pedals

    Look Keo Pedals

    Shimano PD-R540 Pedals


    Im open to any suggestions/recomendations of any of these 3. BTW, do you think the shoes look better in black or the white/red???


    Cheers

    Those shoes will fit all of those pedals, I'm not sure if each type of pedal uses a different type of cleat specific to the pedal though. Someone will be along who knows more than me.
    I use the Looks and they do me fine but I haven't used the other types to be able to compare.


    I think the shoes look better in white/red.

    The hole pattern on the shoes looks identical to mine and I was told they were compatible with all cleats. The cleats come with the pedals so assuming I was informed correctly by my LBS, then you shoud have no probs.

    Yep, you're be fine with all those.

    Stick with the Keos or Time.

    Look have just release the 'Keo Easy'. They're cheaper than the classics, almost as light as the Keo carbons and aimed at anyone new to clipless pedals. Not actually tried the Keo-easy but i've been riding the keo carbons for a few years now and love them.

    You can have them for the postage if you want...though they've a few scratches.

    No cleats though!

    Those DHB shoes aint too bad i was looking a them too !

    Though if your a 43 id look at some shoes simonali has for sale. £ 30 quid too - good value for a retail of £90+.

    However, there is no tensioning bolt. So if they are loose and you want to tighten them up, you cant.
    I have the Look Keos. I like them, and they were my first clipless pedals.
    As for the shoes, go for the ones that match your bike, if they will match your bike. The shoes i have match them, not that you can tell because i have overshoes on.

    yeah, im hopefully gonna go for the red shoes, matching the bike. Im building up quite a nice red colour scheme, with a red/silver/black frame, red shoes, red cages, red jersey...
