: Id like to change pedals of my mountain bike, which type should I prefer?

There are so many types of pedals. I recommend that you'll get a pair that you know and you are comfortable with. Or you can also check for reviews on pedals and take the ones with the highest rate. However, you should remember that what's fit some people will not necessarily fit you...

Nail cleats are not exiting when the mallet hits on my Bostitch MFN-201. The spring mechanism appears quite loose; you can push it down or in very easily by hand.

That is most likely what needs to be replaced as that is the return spring. If it is weak it may not be allowing the driver to go back up far enough to let the next cleat load into the nose. Here is the parts diagram. Bostitch (Stanley Tool Works) just merged with DeWalt so you can get the part from either company now or a dealer of either company.

The screws on my shimano cleats keep coming loose, causing major problems during rides. How do I fix this.

Go to your local auto parts store and buy a tube of locktite (for threads). Apply it on the threads of the screws and then tighten them down again (follow the instructions on the tube). There are set up time instructions on the tube - if you follow them correctly - you won't have any more trouble with them coming loose.

How do i fit cleats to shoes. holes don 't match up?

All SPD pedals use a 2-hole side-by-side mounting pattern. Your shoes must have this same pattern or this is no way to mount the cleats.

Look at the bottom of your shoes:

Is there a 3 hole pattern in the shape of a triangle? Then this is a Road shoe, it may or may not have the 2 hole option. If it has the 2-hole option then you will see generally one fixed hole and a long slot next too it. If there is no threaded insert then one has too be added. Some road shoes that are capable of having the 2-hole option need an internal adapter.

If you have mountain bike shoes (shoes that the cleat once installed is recessed), then you should see two side by side holes. Again some shoes need an internal adapter to provide the threading to screw into. These should have come with your shoes. If you don't see any holes, then you may have a cover that needs removing to gain access.

If neither of these is your scenario then you should consider visiting a bike shop to have them look at your shoes and see what the exact problem is. Any half-way decent mechanic or shop person could tell you in a couple seconds if the shoes and pedals are compatible.

One shoe won't snap into spd pedal

SPD hold on to cleats with a spring loaded action. This is normally adjusted with an allen key. Check that this is not screwed in so tight that action is locked up. If you don't have adjustment instructions go to and download. You should be able to check for movement by pushing against spring clip with screwdriver (saves the fingers but mind it doesn't slip). If no movement also check for foreign body in pivot of clip. If all OK check for position of cleat in shoe. Make sure mount position is same as other shoe.
