    look keo carbon: on sale for 132 from 200 http://www.probikekit.com/display.php?code=A1468

    dura ace: for 142 from 215 http://www.probikekit.com/display.php?code=D1103
    I had a look at the keo's and the dura ace when I bought my first pair of ultegras.

    I didn't buy the dura ace because they can only be attached using an allen key from the other side of the crank. There is no slot on the side for a 15mm pedal wrench.

    I didn't buy the Keo's because the platform did not look as supportive, and when I asked the guy at the LBS, he said I might be better off with Shimano..

    Currently? Yes.

    Ok really I have no idea. But I used to ride them and liked them quite a lot. Only drawback for me was the crazy slipperiness of the cleat on hard surfaces. Otherwise the completely non-centering float was awesome.

    Only buy pedals with Chrome-moly steel spindles, titanium spindles will flex more than you want....my vote would be Shimano Ultegra with the new stainless steel wear plate on the top

    my shimano SPD-SL pd-R540's are the same way. and have had zero problems with them. Plus at around 50 bucks you can't beat them!

    I really like regular platforms, it lets me bike in whatever footwear fits the weather- sneakiers, goretex boots or tevas (recently did 25+ miles on tevas)
