- Road pedals
most road pedals have adjustable spring tension, just like SPDs so you can tune the ease of entry and release, if that’s what you mean
and they all varying degrees of ‘float’ so you can move your foot around without it coming unclipped
but once you’re in, you’re in, just like an SPDPosted 3 years agoTiRedMember
you can’t get most road pedals to that ‘feet falling out’ level of looseness.
Until the cleats are worn, then it’s time to replace them. Look cleats on the lightest tension will unclip very easily. But it requires a more defined movement than the multi-release shimano spd cleats.Posted 3 years agotpbikerMember
Slight hijack, but anyone got any thoughts on speedplay pedals. I hate not having double sided pedals, and can’t get on with my look keos at all.
I do have bling pair of roadie shoes however, so want to use them. How easy are the speedplays to get in and more importantly out of. I’ve seen the light action ones which may be the way to go.Posted 3 years agoads678Subscriber
I’ve just started using spd-sl’s and was a bit worried about being able to unclip at first. Used them for a week now, commuting, had them set at the slackest setting but am ready to tighten them up a bit now. Unclipping isn’t a problem, but clipping in is harder the mtb spd’s. You adapt quickly though.Posted 3 years ago
I actually think I prefer them to mtb spd’s, for the road bike anyway.FrankensteinMember
Speed-play or Look for escaping easily but lock in enough to mash up hills.
And nice range of float. Look are cheaper and Speedplay create pedal envy 🙂
I could never clip out of Time pedals and struggled with Shimano pedals probably as I wasn’t flexible enough with angles.
(Shimano mtb pedals are great.)Posted 3 years ago
