I searched for a thread on this, did not see one?
I am looking for the opinions of riders who haul heavy loads so long that at the end of the day each foot must be lifted from the pedal by hand as legs are petered out.
I meet many who prefer platform pedals while touring.
Most the guys I see who use clip-less are new to load hauling. Clip-less or Not..........I like both.
I have some issues with platforms,,,,and some with clip-less.
Clip-less means extra shoes,,,,,I been walking in my shoes with cleats and my feet are NOT happy.
My question is this, At the end of the hard day, (Old fat guy here)
Which pedal will make my legs work harder? With heavy loads.
Which pedal is the most fuel efficient?
Do you have any concerns about safety when you try to get off the bike after a l o n g l o n g day? You know, getting un-clipped,,,,,,,,
