Help with old Nashbar LOOK style pedals

Okay, no judgement, please. I got these old Nashbar LOOK pedals on eBay because they fit the look of my newly-repainted Cannondale CAAD 2 R300. The listing said they were LOOK pedals, but neither Delta nor Keo style fit. Any ideas from the gathered wisdom out there about what cleats exactly would work with these? Thanks in advance.

The questionable items in question.

Those could be store branded Wellco. The proper cleat is Wellgo RC-1 or RC-2 if memory serves. Similar to Delta cleats but rear is slightly different to fit the slot in the middle of the clamp.

Look Delta cleats will sort of work but releasing the shoe is tricky and may sometimes get stuck. You can try it (carefully), and see if your normal release action works reliably.

Search ebay, there are some original cleats listed.

Most likely license built or just rebranded Looks......

I know, right? But I'm telling you, my red cleats did not click in. Too large.

That's helpful. Thank you. I had no idea how many varieties of LOOK-like cleats are out there.

I have several pair of these pedals, and KCT1986 is correct...they are rebranded Wellgo's, and the correct cleat is RC1 or RC2....the various LOOK cleats simply do not work. That said, the pedals have worked well for the 20 years or so that I've had them...yea, hard to believe they have all lasted as long as they have. Originally I had a stockpile of extra cleats...but sadly, that reserve has dwindled thru the years, and now finding the correct cleat is the bigger challenge.

Good luck with yours.....
