I'm not ready to go for clipless pedals yet because I haven't been riding that long plus I commute to my college classes on it. I'm looking for some platform pedals to replace the stock ones that came on my Trek 4500. If they're the kind that absolutely obliterates your shins if you happen to come into contact with it, so be it. I just want the best platform pedals for my money. I would appreciate any opinions or suggestions. On my list ride my feet slipped away from the pedals a couple of times, and I'd like to avoid that as much as possible without switching to clipless.
