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

I had Look pedals on my bike 23 years ago, the design hasn't changed all that much. Look copying Shimano, I don't think so.

I think there's a reason the OP put a smile in the title....

You all are rising to the bait.

Anyways I got a pair of Look pedals for a college graduation gift back in 1987 just in case the OP is actually serious.

Well ban him then, Walt.

Yes Look, who invented the clipless pedal, have copied Shimano.

Such abuses of power must be done on the sly.

Now that you've discussed it publicly.........

Oh.



In that case we'll take care of him through normal channels . . . . abuse and belittlement.

Hmmm I thought Mavic introduced the first clipless pedal. I had a pair and they were very nice.

Actually, I think Cinelli was the first to try. Didn't work too well.

The worst design I ever tried was Campy SGRs. They weigh a ton and, uncharacteristically for Campy, are truly ugly. The cleat actually slides into slots so the only way to clip out is to pull your foot back out of the pedal. I put them back into the box after <10 miles. Someday they'll go to an eBay collector for big bucks (I hope ).
