    Anyone used SPD-SL to SPD adapters with road bike shoes?

    [posted on a couple of bike forums] In the process of dealing with a continuing Ultegra 6800 SPD-SL pedal problem on my road bike, among the alternatives that came up was to use SPD-SL to SPD adapters to switch back to SPD (mountain bike) pedals. Additional weight aside, the advantage is two sided entry. Has anyone here used those adapters with road bike shoes, for better or worse or both? My shoes are the Shimano RP3. Thanks,

    Update: My mistake: seems the RP3 (now RP100) is actually SPD-SL and SPD compatible, so no adapter needed - https://www.rei.com/product/892876/s...ike-shoes-mens

    Good to know, thanks. They are charging a good bit for them in Canada, as the U.S. site shows them for $30. As I mentioned in my update, it's unlikely they'll be necessary because my road shoes are also SPD compatible. Had I recalled that or looked it up again, I wouldn't have posted.
