Please suggest me a pedal thatt lasts long and also confortable for riding within city limits.
I'm looking at that bike right now, will not be buying til October or so though.
I have had two sets of clipless pedals, I always have preferred "mountain" pedals which are dual sided....I have Shimano PDM530's right now and am happy with them, bought a $75 pair of Specialized shoes, again of the "Mountain" variety.
I never had an issue adapting to clipless BUT most of my riding does not require a lot of clip/unclip cycles....I will usually only unclip 2-3 times in a 16 mile ride. I did back them off to the lightest tension when I put them on the bike, they have never come unclipped while pedaling.
