PEDALS (Look vs Shimano)
Looking to get the g/f a mid to upper grade set of pedals for xmas, to go on her "new" Masi carbon she bought a month or so ago.
I had it narrowed down to Ultegra or Look Keo Blade Carbon. I had decided on the Look, for a great price on ebay (in fact was going to buy 2...xmas gift to myself). Ran it by a friend that really knows bikes, and he saw that the Blades don't seem to have an adjustment screw for clip-in tension....you get the 12Nm (or 16 or 20....12 in this case) that the carbon strap is set to. Is this correct?!
Any thoughts on not having the (in)ability to do minute adjustments to get the tension you like? This is almost the top of the line Look pedal (Ti being the one higher) so there has to be a reason they dont have an adjustment.
The Look Keo 2 Max DO have an adjustment screw, but of course are heavier and I assume not as "advanced".
Ultegra is always a solid pedal, and weighs about the same as the Keo 2 Max. So if I decide against the Blade, then I have the decision of Keo 2 max vs Ultegra
