My bike came with the "Wellgo LU-962" pedals that has toe clips
and straps. These straps and toe clips seem to be a pain for me
at present, especially if I take my foot out to stop at a traffic light.
It's such a pain to get my foot back in when I start rolling.
I have been told to get the "clipless pedals". These would not only
make it easier to “get in” and “out” of, but would also help me feel
the bike better and distribute more of my pedal effort to where
it should be.
I have been recommended these to consider.
1. Crank Brothers “Eggbeaters”
2. Crank Brothers Quattro SL Road
3. Crank Brothers Candy C pedal.
4. LOOK Keo Sprint Road
5. LOOK PP357 Road
Being a rookie in biking, I’m really not sure which one of these road pedals
would be the best application for me. I did some web reviews on some of
the pedals listed above, but I was not able to make a judgment call on the
“Pro’s” and “Cons’ of these pedals since most of the comments were from riders
that race a lot or have been riding for years. I'm not in any of these categories
yet so some of their con's may not be applicable to me. I just need some easy “in”
and “out” pedals that provide the transfer of effort and no “Headaches” .
Thanks to all in advance for your replies.
