- speedplay experiences
so bit the bullet and bought some speedplay light actions.
1 great as really cant feel pedal through shoe
2 bad right foot seem to float around a LOT and pops out very easily . scared to pull up when out of saddle.
havnt actually been on ride just up and down road. should i have bought normal ones instead of easy release? or just a case of changing riding style? anyone have similar experiencePosted 5 years agoTheDoctorMember
Other road pedals will lock your foot in position much more securely. The whole benefit of speed play is that you have un hindered float. So foot instability not always apparent with other pedal systems.
If your foot moves around that much on speed play pedals the problem is you, not the pedal!Posted 5 years ago
piece of piss to get in and out of!!. feet are stable when seated so not a prob at all but quick sprint out of saddle very sketchy but only 1 foot. i think its too much float for me poss.
went for light actions for commuting in london area. LBS recommended go for lights over normal.
will give another go but prob not for me so kennyp if your interested mail me firstname.lastname@example.orgPosted 5 years agodoof_doofMember
