Suggestions:
1) At least look at the thread titles on the first page or 2..you will see 5 threads directly talking about pedals.
2) Speedplay x, Speedplay Zero, Spd-R, SPD-SL, Look, Time Atac, Eggbeaters,Clips and straps.

Whatever road system your using will be fine and that what people use at my local track. Specialist pedal systems are only required at elite level and when you get to that level you don't need to ask so whatever you have is fine.
