Hi. I'm down
I posted this on another forum, but thought I would try here with an amendment in my question so that I may get better replies
I've been on the web literally for hours trying to find a picture of the pedal that I tried when I was recently in a bike shop. It was called (accoeding to the guy I called at another store) a Box clipless, perhaps SPD? made by Shimano. Nothing I have seen matches the pedal I saw,so I can't figure out if it is top of the line or maybe just "so-so" for a pedal. I mean, I only test rode for 15 minutes in the typical parking lot and I wasn't even clipped in.
I'm going in extremely soon and want to have a leg up on what the sales guys tell me (even tho they seem nice). I always feel like because I am a girl and have a tendency to be friendly and nice instead of serious and aggressive that I sense a certain omission of the complete truth about products and information (sometimes, not always mind you!) when dealing w/some 'salespeople'. It's a bummer...and so is not being able to find this pedal. Any recommedned sites whre it could be hiding???I have looked on the Marin bikes but the pictures obscure the Box pedals!! The closest pedal I found that was still way off on the pedal I saw was called Shimano PD-M324 but the one I used was more of, well, like if you maybe drew two different tic-tac-toe signs on separate sheets of paper and then used steel or alloy or whatever to crisscross them with each other into a "skeletal" pedal (i guess you just have to see it). sigh. Sorry for the superlong post!
Everyone here has really saved my butt about bike knowledge and I really appreciate it. Any replies on this one will be graciously recieved.
