    m180 shoes - what are the bolts for?
    hi all, I've been happily using shimano m180 shoes for a couple of months now on my 959s - very happy with them. Anyway just a question, what are the two bolts screwed into the sole under the toes for? All the shimano manual says is that you shouldn't screw spikes into them - not very helpful. I don't know of any cleats that could really be mounted that far forward.

    Happy for any insights anyone has.

    Those are traction bolts to help when your off the bike and climbing a hill

    surely a couple of hard rubber knobs would be more practical, lighter, and cheaper?

    oh well thanks for the response Murchman.

    Yes , they are knobs for traction.
