SPD cleats

  1. I want to replace the cleats on my shoes which are listed as SM-SH51 on the cleat, I have been using
    these on M515 pedals. The website I am about to order from insists that SH51 cleats should only be
    used on M959 pedals and that the replacements I need are SH52. Is this an error on their part or
    have I been using the wrong combination of cleats and pedals? I can't believe that as they seem to
    work fine. Anyway whats the difference?

    Thanks,

    Daniel.
