Hi Guys and Girls, Can you guys please vote for the pedal manufacturer who you consider being the World Leader (Innovation/performance and so on) in pedals, Road or MTB.   You don't have to own a pair. Thanks for the help.

Not many bikes come with expensive pedals like LOOK, SPEEDPLAY, TIME and CRANK BRO's

 

So Shimano being the default on most bikes, and some other brands as well

 

Guess there's more Shimano out there than what we think.

 

Not sure what the "standard / default" setup is on EUROPEAN bikes ?

[/quote'] You're spot on Astana...that's why I would like to know which brand you perceive to be the best, not necessarily using.

Thought you were trying to figure out what the most used pedal is... read the topic again and saw where your coming from.

 

I love my speedplays on Road bike and Look's on MTB - both allow enough float for my buggered left legBig%20smile

I have only used Shimano and Look before, so I will only comment on those two.

 

Cleat durability & lifespan - Shimano

Pedal durability & lifespan -  Shimano

Bling factor - Look

Weight - Look

Ease of cleat engagement - Shimano

Service - Look (Mr Look in particular and in fairness I havent tried Shimano service yet)

 

Should I be given a choice between the two for my next pair, Ill probably go for Speedplay purely because those cleats look indestructible!

What is there to improve? When something work it works. What new innovations has CB have? They just go lighter, not better.

All the other brands also recommend that you walk with covers, but do you?

I dont have space to carry them around, they ad weight and look gay.

They might also only recommend that you wear covers while walking with Speedplay because they dont want you to crack the tiles you are walking on Big%20smile

don't you walk to your table after securing your bike to against a wall for you mid ride coffee break? Do you get on your bike as soon as you leave the house? Don't you put your foot down when stop at a red light or stop street?

 

 

 

Anyway, if I spend any less on my road bike they will reposes it. I just bought new road shoes because my other pair I bought 7 years ago is going now. I almost died having to fork out R860.

Shimano MTB pedals is the best. The best value for money and the best design, simple and effective. I will never use anything else.

  what are these Covers? this is new to me? does it resemble your pedal, so you clip into the cover and then walk on it?

yup that's it, suppose to protect your cleats while walking!

But it is always my left cleat that goes first, and that is from stopping at robots and stop streets, not walking
