    Toe clips are awful.

    SPDs don’t cause knee pain, there’s probably something else going on – most likely saddle too low? Or cleats in the wrong position?

    I use toe clips and beartraps on my tourer, because spd’s cause ME knee pain too.
    specialised sonama or Tahoe are good with clips.

    Toe traps gave my wife knee pain- because they are lethal and she fell of at a junction. Your SPDs need setting up properly, or saddle height. Get thee to a proper roadie bike shop and they’ll sort the position out.

    I hasten to add, I have used spd’s since they were 1st released.
    I now cant get on with them. clips and straps work fine for me.

    Thanks ton, We’ll have a look at the specialized.
    She’s tried with spuds for quite a while, different positions and set ups, but just doesn’t like them. She’s happy with the toe clips, so who am i to argue!
    I did mention flats and five tens, but she’s not keen on that idea.

    Exactly the same here.

    I found using spd touring pedals helped massively with knee pain.

    My wife tried riding with spd’s but causes knee pain. She’s using toe grips but is struggling to find a good stiff soled shoe. Any recommendations?

    Thanks for any ideas.
