Best price & service on the net. Fast delivery & these are my second pair of speedplay pedals as I am so impressed with the first set I bought for my for my other road bike. Dodgy knees are no problem due to the movement allowed by these pedals.Report this review
very good product for low price5
I like those pedal very much. I already got a pair on one of my bike and I buy a second pair for my other bike, because it's the best pair that I ever got.Report this review
Well worth the learning curve5
Wasn't able to clip in initially. Changed the shims to better fit my shoes and used a dry lube on the clip ring. I was able to clip in after that with some difficulty but it has since become very easy to clip in. I commute and what I like most is even if I don't get the clip in on the first try as long as I'm lined up I can reliably push on the pedal and worry about clipping in later. Same thing on shimano pedals and my foot launches off like the pedal is coated in butter. I've found my knees are feeling better after switching to these pedals. The float is fantastic. I initially found it difficult to sprint with the float set to max but I've come to like the float on the sprint. I like the way that the clips rotate as the bike moves side to side. Some will prefer to lock down the float for the sprint and if that's your preference you can always lock the float. Short comings: maintenance to keep the cleat lubed, no grip on the bottom of the cleat, difficult to walk in. There was an initial learning curve but in the end well worth the effort and I prefer these pedals to other systems even with the short comings.Report this review
Simple, flawless design5
Speedplay pedals are so easy to use. No toe-flipping of pedals, no stepping on the wrong sides. Just snap in. Colors and style are fun, matching my frame. My knees have always hurt some when cycling, especially on longer rides, but these allow for enough float so no mechanical caused pain - I can focus on personal pain. One tip - don't forget to grease them (one of the small pains), and they'll last a long time. I grease them when I clean my chain.Report this review
Dual sided miracles4
Brought these mainly for the two sided entry. have to say they work a treat riding through city areas with traffic lights every 10m! easy to get in and out of, no stress or panicking!
Takes a bit of time to get used to the clipping in, as they are stiff, just ensure screws arent super tight on first ride and off you go!
Super easy but cleats are costly4
Great pedals. They are super easy for getting in to due to the 2 sided design. This is great when riding in traffic and for those who have the daily commute it is a real saftey advantage. They require a bit of maintenance but not so much that it is a problem.
The only draw back is the cost of the cleats. They last a while but when it comes time to replace they are not cheap.
All in all a great all type of riding pedal.
Really minimalist looking. Great to click in on both sides. My red pair came in at 210 grams. Adjust the following cleats for your likes and you are good to ride!Report this review
Overall best pedal system4
I started out with Look's entry level model and was always irritated by how often I needed to replace the cleats. So onward to Time which were much better for cleat use but the front locator on the pedal itself broke after a year or so.
So I moved on to Speedplay as I liked the double sided idea, something I am used to for MTB pedals. Makes it so much easier to clip in and really like how you can adjust the float to your own preference.
The cleats do need maintenance but so far have lasted longer than all previous pedal systems, so have to expect some.
The maintenance aspect and the fact that they squeak a bit when fitted to shoes with more sole curve on them means I only can give them a 4 star. Despite this they are still the best road pedal system I have used and are great to ride with.
I find the stack height and clearance advantages are not really noticeable for my club level racing status but I guess it helps confidence in that area.
If you are a weight weenie feel free to go for the higher level ones for more $ - but these are fine for me.
Great introduction to Speedplay pedal system5
These were my intro to Speedplay pedals since using Look Keo. These have been invaluable for commuting - esp as they are quick to release when you need it (in an emergency), yet wont release if you're. This depends on the degree of float that you dial in. These don't require you to look down at all. And the double sided nature of these meant that I could stomp down while looking ahead and get faster off the mark when cycling ahead of traffic. I feel well connected to the cranks as the stack height is low. They will need some time to break in, but not long. In all, if you want to use the Speedplay system without the cost, these are a great start.Report this review
