    pedal recommendations?

    Ok, so I got to go out this morning on my new Stumpjumper ... LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the bike ... hate the pedals. The pedals it came with are SPDs and I can't get out of them for the life of me. The bike shop dude loosened them up (although not sure if he loosened them all the way) but they still seem pretty damn tight!

    Anyone have pedals they LOVE?? Pedals that are nice and easy to get out of???

    You may have to chamfer the sole lugs on your shoes. Trim the rubber immediately around the cleat. If they are easy to clipin and hard to clipout this may be another problem.

    Matching shoes, cleats and pedals takes a little experimentation. I have a set of Crank Brothers Mallet SE pedals, Sette spd sandals and it took a little work with the provided shims and an exacto knife to get in and out of them on demand.

    The Mallets were my first and only SPD pedals. I like how they work, however, the cleats wear quickly, by design to keep the pedal parts from wearing out. Oh well, there is never a free lunch.

    I have Crank Brothers Candy SL pedals and love them. If I had to go out and buy another pair I'd get the eggbeaters (no mini platform).

    Have you tried getting the SPD multi release cleat it is much easier to disengage with them - you can twist heel both ways and they even come with a slight heel raise while twisting.. they are much easier than the standard cleat that comes with pedals.

    Wud be cheaper than buying new pedals....

    those odyssey pedals are nice i ran them on my bmx and beat them to hell.

    i think they would be heavy if you are trying to cut down on grams

    Put on the shoes
    If they are not a snug fit replace them with some that are(preferably non-laceup ones)
    take off the shoes
    clip them in
    look to see if any of the lugs are in the way
    trim off any that are
    loosen the tension the rest of the way
    put the shoes back on and practice getting in and out of the pedal
    ride with them a couple of dozen times.

    If you are still having trouble I would blame the shoes. Not having clips or clipless is really not an option of an xc bike. If you think clipless are hard to get out of wait till you try toeclips.

    Being a 40 y.o. wuss, I removed the 520s that came with my FSR and put on Performance Campus pedals. They have spd on one side & standard mtb flat on the other. There are just times while riding when I don't want to be clipped in if I have to bail out. Like the other day when I just stopped dead into a big rock through a rock field. Fell over like a redwood cuz I couldn't get out in time. Got home and switched out to the Campus. They're heavy, but I don't have a better option at this point.
