I think my 21-year-old son would enjoy clipless pedals on his Allez road bike, but he doesn't want to be tied to always wearing bike shoes. He often rides to places where he wants to be wearing regular shoes. So I've been considering buying him some pedals that are platform on one side and Shimano mountain clipless (PD?) on the other.
I have a question about them. When they are at rest, which side is up? I ask this because when I had Look Keos on my road bike they rested at a steep angle, and it was always a hassle to get them oriented so I could clip in. I replaced them with mountain pedals that are double sided so I never have to do any futzing to get them ready to clip in - I just step down and I'm in.
I'm hoping the combination clipless/platform will rest with the clipped side up. Can anyone offer information?
