    Shimano 970 xtr pedal cleat question

    Need another set of pedals for my road bike and I want the same pedals as my mountain bikes which are 959s. I can get a good deal on the 970s but I want to wear the same shoes so I don't want to mess around with different styles of cleats.

    Are the cleats the same for 959s and 970s?

    It is my understanding that the 970 pedals are slightly trimmed down 959 and are essentially the same. It is the same pedal.

    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.
