    powerstrap and pedals

    for the people that use or have used powerstraps, what kind of pedal do you feel works the best? i was thinking some platforms without burly pins might be pretty nice.

    Hmm, not sure if you saw the thread, or didn't, or it didn't cover you question, but around 2 weeks ago, if my memory is correct, there was a 2-3 page thread on this topic.

    From what I know...they are better than just a platform pedal, better than the MKS half-clips (those got beat up on yesterday in a thread) but not as good as full clips and straps, nor double straps. They do a nice job and allow you to wear just about any type of shoe.

    I have them on MKS GR-9's. They're great. Powergrips and smooth pedals let you wear street shoes on your bike but still have good control.

    I wear size 11 or 12 shoes. Needless to say, on narrow pedals like GR-9's, my feet try to roll outwards. Clips and straps provide better support on the outside, but they trash the shoe tops. Powergrips are nicer to shoes, although they require a bit more effort to keep the feet level with the power going to the center of the pedal. Powergrips make the right trade offs for trips up to 5 miles. I haven't tried them on long rides yet.

    If you put them on something too wide, watch out for pedal strike.
