clipless

shimano, ritchie, both make a good mid range pedal, shimano and ritchie have good float, although shimano are a little easier to dis-engage in my openion.! Especally if you use the spd multi release cleat.!!

pedals

Make sure you buy pedals that have bearings in them instead of bushings-bushings won't last as long

Time Pedals

If you're gonna be cycling in muddy conditions, then Time pedals would have to be a consideration. I run them on my MTB and Cross bike and they're fab. Shimano pedals are also pretty cool.

Good luck

Thanks for the replies.

Another query. Has anyone used the Kore G.A.S.S. Crmo pedal?

If so what is your opinion. Just that I could buy a set at a pretty good price. (No they haven't fallen off the back of a truck!!)

What Pedals?

Urm, never heard of them b4...still, of what I know of Kore, they're pretty good products generally.

Hmmmm.

Never heard of em, never seen em. take care of design rip off`s, stay with the more well known names, then you cant go wrong. You know the old saying , all that glitters is not gold.!!!

spuds, horizontal bike stands, too much balls

I have been on a quest to purchase some new clipless pedals myself... rockwerks are some good CHEAP peddles that stand up to everything that Shimano's spuds can. I can buy rockwerks locally for $50-$60, but anyone that I know that is REALLY, REALLY seriously into MTB has Times. They have a simpler design, and shakes mud like a duck shakes water. You should be able to pick up a pair of times for 100 bucks.

Good luck.

I race BMX and I do alot of Trail riding on my Mountain bike... i found out that you dont buy a midrange pedal.... and I also found out that no pedal is like a Shimano Pedal... I sugest the cheapest shimano pedal you buy is an M434 with the plastic cage... they work awsome plus I like the fact that if you blow a clip you can finish your ride cause there is a platform there for recovery

Clipless pedals

went to my local shop to get some new cleats the other day but the only shimano ones they had were the SH-52's for the 858. when i got home looked them up in the trade sales and support guide and it says there all right for my 636 pedals, but when i fitted them they had an annoying click on high power downstrokes. so i compared them with the old sh-51's and found that 52's have i little spike at the rear which the spring plate was sliding up and down as i pushed down and pulled up. Ground it off and ther nice and silent and not as hard to get out. Just a little tip for you folk out there

The TIMEs would probably still be working ten years later...much like this thread.
