    I put MKS touring pedals on my new build and so far they seem fine although I haven't ridden more than 20 miles at a time with them.

    I use MKS platforms with toe clips on my roadie, MKS Lambda on my hybrid but I have Shimano clipless on my touring bike for the long days in the saddle. I gave up the clipless on the other bikes because I got sick of wearing the special shoes all the time.

    Due to an old ankle injury and multiple surgeries on same - I found out the hard way that I cannot rotate my left foot enough to get out of clipless.

    I wanted the largest platform I could find - did a good bit of looking on forums and the internet.

    Settled on Speedplay drilliums. Use a pair of Teva pinner shoes with them.

    Haven't slipped off, they ride great for me - If you lift your foot somewhat on the upstroke, you would be surprised at how much you can pick up the cadence.

    Note: at the time Speedplay did not publish width/length/height. I called them, no definitive answer by tech, so I had them get a pair out of the warehouse and measure.

    They seem huge, and just right.

    Contact surface is slightly concave -

    4" width
    3 9/16 " front to back

    The above measurements are contact surface only, and are not overall - a little larger overall due to offsets of surface.

    Pricey, but I am quite well pleased.

    Triode,
    It is good you are having success with the Drilliums. I thought those might be an option, but my spouse expressed concern about the comfort of the "spikes." I also called Speedplay to ask if these were suitable for use with a road bike and the gentleman who answered the phone basically said, "not really use something else." Thanks for letting us know these work for you.

    For a bad a$$ pedal that is fun to ride in any conditions, nothing like ole skool VP Bear Claws http://www.ebay.com/itm/BEAR-TRAP-BI...264#vi-content

    Warning, they can draw blood. However, I know ladies that ride em and love em, but perhaps they just like it rough...

    I use the Ergons on a hybrid bike. I like them because they work with any shoe, and a stiff sole is not necessary because you have such a large pedal platform. However, the sandpapery surface is not as gritty as I would like, I can get slippage if the pedals are wet. They do look a bit disproportion to the bike size, but they are not heavy.

    I use the silver MKS Touring pedals on almost all my bikes. They are wider and grip shoes great.
