    I would start here as it is quite recent and will give you an idea of what people are using. If you have questions about specific components you should probably try out the search function to see what comes up and then ask specific questions from there if you still need more info...

    I just so happen to have a picture of the pedals on one of my bikes, already uploaded to photobucket. I use SPDs cause they're a dime a dozen and I have a dozen bikes.

    Eggbeaters are easy to use. I have eggbeaters & candys on 4 bikes. However, I've broken the spindles on 2 in the last three years. The pedals that broke had been used for a few years, but its still something to think about.

    So does called your thread "Official" make it so, even when there are like 400 other threads on the same topic?

    i think i'll go with the eggbeaters based on the reviews ive read and the price. when i find shoes, i'll pull the trigger on the pedals.

    now, where to get shoes? LBS? REI?
