    Pedal definitions

    Am I right in saying that float is the horizontal distance your foot can come away from the pedal, and that rotation is how far you have to twist your foot to unclip? What is the 'release angle'? I'm trying to decide if I should get frogs or eggbeaters. Something good for semi-bad knees.

    basically

    on eggbeaters

    float is 6 degrees.. that means u can move urr foot left and right 6 degrees.

    release angle is 15 or 20 degrees depending on how you set them up (there is a 15 and 20 setting) that means when u turn urr foot 15 or 20 degrees u unclip. after u pass the 6 degree float there is a risk of urr foot slipping out tho.

    bad knees? I don't think you'd like spds or eggbeaters. frogs have zero tension. if you've never tried clipless, then you won't know what I mean until you try them. you need to use force to get your foot out of spds/eggbeaters - but frogs you simply turn your foot.

    I LOVE FROGS.
