Pedal Choice
 
Ive been building up a Planet X Track bike frame to be a TT style bike. Ive been using a mix of track components and more road oriented stuff. I absolutely hate clip less pedals, they just aren't practical/comfortable for me. Ive been thinking about the MKS Sylvan pedals but i heard that they are a little small and I have pretty big feet so that might be an issue. Does the bike forums community have any suggestions? Thanks.

I think the mks gr-10s are for wider feet? Those might work. A TT bike that doesn't have clipless seems absurd to me, you are already sacrificing comfort for aero positioning, why not just add some 3 bolt on there and get power on your upswing?

Buy two Kilo TTs and use them as pedals.

Curious…..not practical in what way? Is it because of the shoes you wear for riding?

If you're not using a stiff-soled cycling shoe, these are a good option:

Thanks everyone so much for your suggestions. I know it doesn't make any sense but ill find that out for myself when I start riding the build. I think I'm going for MKS Sylvan Tour, it has the looks and dimensions (other than length) of the sylvan but room for my feet.

Clipess pedals aren't practical but a Planet X frame built up with TT parts for the street is. We have enter'd the twilight zone.

^ Lolz. Very true.

Get yourself a pair of MKS Sylvans or GR-10's along with some descent cages / straps and call it a day. They are wide enough for my fat feet!

They work very well on my bike. With my old feet, I need the Urbans, but the GR-9s and GR-10s are also very good pedals for those of you with more modest extremities.
