Speedplay road pedals
I’ve been running Zeros for the last three years. I don’t think I can say much more than the reviews. They just do the job without any fuss which is a good thing. Better ground clearance due to them being so small. If you do get them make sure you get some cafe covers or if not you will be doing some skating when you stop 😆

Use the zeros myself, and wouldn’t change them.
Find clipping in much easier, especially on hill starts. Cleats also seem to last a while, mine are over a year old now and done 3000+ miles and no sign of them needing replacement yet.
Only downside experienced so far was difficulty in unclipping once as the cleats had a bit of mud in them after having to walk across a grass verge for a call of nature.Posted 5 years agoFuzzyWuzzyMember
Yeah you want Zeros, changed to them a couple of years ago (after using Time and Shimano road pedals previously), can’t see me going back. Only downsides really are the cleats can pack with mud/stones if you walk across pub gardens without using the cafe covers and the first few times you get out of the saddle using them feels a bit weird (at least it did to me) as your feet move about a lot (I guess from being lazy with more fixed pedals whereas with speedplays you need to adapt and stabilise your feet yourself – it literally takes seconds/minutes to adapt though).Posted 5 years agoGary_MMember
Thinking of switching to speedplay pedals as my time ones could do with being replaced.
Seems to be a few different choices – zero, x1, x2, x5, light action. They all look much the same. No idea which I would go for.
Anyone using them? All the reviews suggest they’re great.Posted 5 years agoFuzzyWuzzyMember
Yeah on Zeros you can fix the inner and outer limits of float on the cleat (basically just a screw). Can be handy if say in your natural foot position you heel clears the chainstay but occasionally you clip it (lazy pedal stroke or whatever) so you can set the inner limit screw to stop it happening.Posted 5 years agomudsharkMember
