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

Looks

I like Looks and run 3 pair on 3 roadies. To be honest I haven't ridden other brands but haven't felt the need to either. Switched around 1990. I think I only fell over once and it was in grass Any clipless pedal can be expensive but my wife uses the Nashbar brand Look lookalikes and is happy and they're only around 30$ or so. I agree with others about the virtues of having some float.

I had a pair of those nashbar look-alikes, and they broke after 2 rides! I took it a part, and found that it was really a cheap piece of junk, after all.

Hmmmn

My wife hasn't been riding much as we're currently expecting a family addition Once she starts riding again I'll keep an eye on those pedals. I was going to mention in my first post that eBay is full of used Looks. I bought a pair once for +/- 30$ and am happy with them. In fact just got off them about an hour ago.

I just realized that this was a separate thread. I typed the first post as a response to Droche's thread about pedals. Obviously I pushed the wrong click somewhere. And I thought I was experienced with message boards!
