Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Or should i stick with SPD and just get a higher level pair

Speedplay. Even the cheap Speedplays are good.

I went with Look. I like the larger platform and the float with the red cleats is fine for me. Their least expensive pedals are a little cheaper than Speedplay. It is also Look's lightest pedal. It was a hard choice between the two for me. The Speedplays are a good choice as well. They are lighter and are more adjustable than Look, but the platform put me over the top for Look.

I like Look. I like Speedplay, too, but the idea of spending $60 on replacement cleats doesn't appeal to me, and I find the unlimited float disconcerting. You will have to replace your cleats at some point -- much sooner with Look, of course, but they cost $12.

Anything but SPDs. I like Speedplay myself.
