    asking about bicycle pedals

    I was wondering about clipless pedals.

    http://images.craigslist.org/3n03k73...fe36c9165b.jpg

    Are those clipless pedals or are they clipless pedal look (alike?)
    Can I ride with those w/ regular shoes?

    Will it be better than these with straps?

    Your first photo is a clipless pedal so called designed to be used with road cycling shoes with a cleat bolted to the sole which clips into the pedal. They appear to be a older Look pedal clone. I have seen riders ride with normal shoes with them by flipping them over and riding on the bottoms of the pedals but it is not recommended and probably not comfortable or very secure.

    The second set are toe clip type pedals which are missing the straps. Some riders still prefer toe clips for riding with normal shoes. Pedal choice is a totally individual decision though and if you are a new rider I suggest platform pedals to start with or discussing the choices available with riding buddies, if any.

    don't like those pedals. Just use the tacky black ones with a reflector

    The second image is of a platform pedal, designed for use with toe clips.
    Note: Cycling shoes can be used with toe clips.

    Have you checked out the huge selection of available styles of pedals at several online sites?

    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    I like these pedals. I have them on most of bike (just need to buy like 7 more pair) they are big enough that you can just put your foot on them and start pedaling at a light or hop on and run to 'Dunkers' in your sandles.

    I would not mind a pair or two of these pedals if I could find them
