Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Size 11 shoe - MKS Sylvan Lites

I want to get these pedals but it looks like they have a small platform. Anyone else with a size 11 shoe have these and are satisfied?

Cycling shoes have a rigid sole it shouldn't matter how large the contact area is.

I have them and no longer use them. I ride in vans and the bottoms of my shoes are all chewed up from skids.

they were digging my shoes a little as well...if you are going to ride in soft soled sneakers or something you might want to look at the gr-9 pedal instead

my feet were getting sore with them so i switched to gr-9's, my feet are size 11

i might give them another shot, i do like how they have the inner tab to keep the straps in place
