So I am a Peace Corps volunteer serving in subsaharan West Africa and my Trek 3700 is my only means of transportation. All stock parts, platform pedals. As part of my job I do a lot of biking (upwards of 2-300 km a week) and it is starting to take its toll on my knees and ankles. Terrain is hard on man and bike alike. My doctor says that clipless pedals might be the solution as it will keep my foot locked in one place as opposed to sliding all over the platform.
So, my question is can you recommend me a durable set of clipless pedals that also have a platform for when i just need to run up the street to go to the market. Durability is key here, I don't really care about weight, ease of clip in etc. Also, seeing as I get paid in West African francs cost is another issue.
Also, if you have any recommendations on compatible sandals I'm all ears.
