I can’t help feeling you’re trying to re-invent the wheel here. Given the same amount of time you done on them, you’d probably have nailed either riding SPD or flats and worked out which one felt best for you. Right now it seems you’ve worked out the mag pedals aren’t quite as good as either.
actually, not so much as you’d imagine
Flats, love, have no isses with
SPDs that i tried.. i felt insecure.. and then too secure.. ie my foot felt vague.. and i didn’t have the convenient bail option i quite like
these.. excellent middle ground, with the right shoe i’m sure..
i will ride all 3 in the future i’m sure…
plus, no biggy swapping pedals on occasion
yes, you are right, the SPD pedals i bought have no real platform on the clip side.. and the shoe i have isn’t as supportive as it needs to be i dont think
i cant actually feel the magnet in my setup, there is a rubber buffer under it allowing it to squish down as pressure goes on to the pedal, however, i am unsure if this is the popping sensation i am feeling
