Hmph! I thought it was awesome having no float at all and grinding my knees down until the heat that was generated would cause me to spontaneously combust. Those were the days! Cyclists nowadays have it too easy....bunch of wusses, all of them!I like many things retro.
Cleats ain't one of them.
I hear ya, Grump. My first pair was also Duegi (mine had velcro) with clips and straps. That's why I only like the black (non-floating) delta cleats. I lucked out and bought 4 pairs of black delta cleats at my local velo swap. In my advanced age that should be a life times supply.I still have my first pair of "real" cycling shoes......some Duegi 101's. Still have the pedals and toe clips, too. I even have the white Binda straps to go with them. What's even harder to find are pedals that are compatible with Look Delta cleats. Sure, I could go with Keo, but I still like the larger Delta.
Well, I did go the Amazon route once and got burned. The listing was for the black delta cleats. The description said "black non-floating" and the picture Amazon posted was black but when it was delivered Amazon sent me a bunch of red ones. Refund ensued.Delta cleats are easy to get on Amazon. Delta, or Delta compatible pedals are a different story.
So do I. There is still a lot of the old, 1st generation Delta pedals out there on EBay for about $10/pair. I have 5 of them, giving me enough parts to keep 2 going on my bikes. Also have a couple pairs of the original Look-made Shimano pedals...... What's even harder to find are pedals that are compatible with Look Delta cleats. Sure, I could go with Keo, but I still like the larger Delta.
