    I just use the flats on these during the winter, when it is cold enough that I ride in my insulated hiking shoes instead of MTB shoes.



    I used to have the A530s which are similar but more of a touring pedal. They work great for a touring/century bike, but can get slippery with wet/frozen soles. These are better for keeping your foot in place, especially when standing. If it is above freezing and the roads are fairly clear, I wear my MTB shoes with neoprene covers and clip in just like in the summer.
    Lead, follow or get out of the way

    I will second cyccommute's choice in winter pedals.

    I have ridden the "winter" pedals from 45 NRTH and was not impressed. There is a massive hump near the cranks where the bearings are and it drives me crazy.

    My old stand-by

    What I rock now (Looks were on sale when I broke my last set of Times)


    I normally run Shimano SPDs, but they come off when the snow starts to fly. If clipped in, something with an open platform is best to allow the snow/ice buildup to fall through, i.e. Eggbeaters style.

    *This is coming from a MTB perspective: gotta hike-a-bike here & there, so you get inevitable build up in the cleats.
    Who cares what your bike weighs, just ride it!

    Mine are cheapie Power Grip pedals. Since I ride fixed-gear in the winter, I want some form of foot retention, but I want the ability to bail without any thought if need be.

    I use these Forte Boulevard pedals. Forte Boulevard.jpg The slightly curved platform side fits my non-cycling winter boots quite well, and the spd side works with my winter cycling shoes.
