Pedals for trail type spd shoes?
I’m using some very comfy Cannondale shoes on my cx, similar to this:
The cleat is recessed and I’ve been using them with Eggbeaters plus a shim. It’s becoming painful due to the Eggbeaters, not the shoes.
Are there any other pedals that would work happily with this type of shoe? In addition I do need to be able to walk up hills so ideally wouldn’t need to put cleat covers on.
Edit: haven’t ruled out the possibility that the sole just isn’t stiff enough.Posted 3 years agoThe PinksterSubscriber
If you’re after something a bit more burly those shoes look like they’d work OK with my favourite pedals – Time Z-Controls.
They’re not the lightest in the world but they’re near indestructible. Been using them for years and not killed them (or their bearings) yet.
Very joint friendly too if you’ve got dodgy knees.Posted 3 years ago
The Shimano M530 pedals are less than £20 including cleats. I’ve had mine a year so far and Strava tells me I’ve done at least 1200 off road miles. They still work perfectly. Bearings fine. I’ve never had any trouble clipping in/out. I always pop out when I crash, I sometimes pop out of the pedal when the side of my foot hits a rock.Posted 3 years ago
Buy them. If you don’t like them, throw them away or sell them to me for £15 posted!wobbliscottMember
I use Time Pedals and my MTB shoes have grips either side of the cleat and have no problems with them. Again, two sets of pedals and they’ve been completely flawless in all conditions. Completely unaffected by mud and the bearings run as smooth as they day I got them.Posted 3 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
New candy 3’s over a year in and not touched them once, new mallets the same – did a service at 18 months and been fine since. Service takes 10 mins these days with the new design.
Means you can keep your cleats and compatibility with other bikes if you have CB on them.Posted 3 years ago
