Who was it who wrote something like,
For want of a nail, the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost.
Etc.?

I just bought a pair of Shimano SPD-SL road pedals from an internet store.
The screws that came with them are not long enough to attach the cleats to
my Sidi shoes. Since the required screws have a wide flat head, I hesitate
to try to use standard screws. The internet store says they don't carry the
longer screw.

Does anyone have a suggeston for a source of the longer screws. Shimano
sells them as part number Y-42U 98060. Or do I have to go to my LBS, eat
crow, and ask them to order them for me?

Most hardware stores have a reasonable selection of small metric fasteners.
If you don't find there exactly what you need, you might at least get a fix
on the size/thread of what you need; at which point these places might help.
I'd be surprised if most bike shops would not have some rattling around in a
'junk' drawer, or as part of an adapter kit.

Try a good R/C model shop. They are an excellent source for oddball
hardware.

Home depot had longer screws that exactly matched the pedal's except
for their drive -- they were phillips vs allen. Worked fine for me.

http://www.thethirdhand.com/ probably has what you want, too.

Bike shops are often places where you can find
bicycle-related parts. Hard to believe, but it's true!

No, bike shops are where you go for lumber. Right?
