Speedplay Lite Action vs. X5 + titanium knee joints?
I have used Frogs in the past, and just purchased Speedplay Lite Action Road Pedals at the suggestion of a salesman...am planning to purchase a new road bike. I have OLD knee/tee joints (except for the titanium one).
For those who have used these pedals.......which is best for bum knees? I checked out the Speedplay site and discovered the Lite Action has 15 deg of play.....while the X5 has 20 degrees. Just saw my orthopedist (an elite cyclist) who recommended I continue with pedals with the most play I can find.
Does anyone know what the difference is between these two pedals other than degrees? Lite Action is advertised as an entry level road pedal. Does that mean it is easier to engage/disengage? Do you think an additional 5 degrees at that level of play is signficant?
