Quick Question, Need Reply ASAP!

hi guys, im getting ready to order now, iv got my shoes sorted, and decided to go clipless... now, im wondering what thebest clipless pedals would be for 70 pounds max (may be able to streach by 10), iv looked at tons, but cant make up my mind, id like some shoes for a couple of races, ect, preferably with adjustable tention, i will be using these for them (im lucky that im size 39 ) :http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=7119

Yeah I know what you mean. Those are some heavy ass pedals. They weigh more than the bike

I got some 10 shimano SPDs in jejames last year. They work fine, have adjustable tension and weigh 360g for the pair - less than most flat pedals. You'll probably struggle to find them quite that cheap, but you certainly don't need to spend 70 on some pedals (unless you're a weight weenie).
