Currently riding shimano pedals on my Cervelo. The left one is giving me endless hassles, always making some kind of sound. LBS stripped it and fixed it, was fine for a while but starting up again.

I want to replace the. Any suggestions on new ones? Not Shimano again.

Thanks. I ride Time on the MTB and love them. Which model for the road?

What about speedplay?

Apparently they are quite knee friendly.

Any comments.

 

Yip, but at over R1000 a pair and R250 a pair of cleats, not very wallet fiendly. What about Crankbrother Quatros?

I bought a pair of speedplay zeros to try out 3 years ago. They have been super! I upgraded my other bike to them soon after.

 

Pros:

Adjustable float, or can be locked to have no float at all

Double sided entry, clipping in is a breeze.

Low mass

Lots of cornering clearence, shoe scrapes before pedal

 

Cons:

Had to replace the clip/spring on one of the cleats. Not too bad considering it saw lots of miles.

The bottom of the cleat is aluminium, and scratches easily if walked on. I bought some speedplay cleat covers which solved that problem.

Im too scared to lean that far into a corner!

I have had 2 crashes (A Didata rider switched me in Edenval race last year, & some red & white barrier tape fluttering in the wind grabbed the handlebar on a training ride the year before that) where I fell sideways and did not unclip the foot on the side I fell to. Shoe scraped, not pedal. This is not good when crashing, replacing shoes more expensive than replacing pedalsUnhappy

Even though I lost the SA Speedplay agency - Speedplay X series are the best after 25 years of cycling behind me and many pedals.
