After reading the recent Speedplay threads, I was convinced to buy one or another of the mid-to-higher-end road pedals. And then I saw the prices.
I can be very creative at justifying nearly any bicycle-related purchase, and I'm not knocking the product, but I'm just in shock. I mean you could buy an awful lot of beer for the price two shoes and two pedals. Come to think of it, I bought a nice Italian-made road bike frame on Ebay for similar coin last year. Guess I'll just stick with the ol' SPD pedals and cheap mountain bike shoes I've been rolling with for the past five years or so. Besides, I reckon no shoes or pedals on earth would lift me from my status as a charter member of Team Dead Last.
