    98' ritchey cleats for sale?

    Hey there, I just bought a 98 specialized M2 from a painter for 4 bills, he didn't even break it in. He didn't have cleats for the pedals. Does anyone know where I could get some cleats/shoes setup for these pedals? Also does anyone know what I should do to a bike that has been sitting for about 10 years?

    Depends upon your skill level.

    Check all the cables and housings to make sure things are not all jammed up or rusted internally. Check to make sure the brake shoes are soft. Check to make sure the tubes are good and the tires not cracked. Lube all the pivots and the chain and run it through the gears. Pull the crank sideways and look for obvious rattling or looseness. Give the brakes a good hard squeeze and if they hold throw a leg over that baby and ride. Easy at first until you have convinced yourself that it will hold up to real use.

    If it were my bike I would replace all the soft parts, cables and housings, and repack all the bearings, but that's me.

    98 Ritchey pedals are SPD compatible, shoes and cleats available pretty much everywhere
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised
