|Time or Look for racing. For casual riding, just about any clipless will work fine.|

|Another unanswerable question. Best value? Best for ease of entry? Best for ease of exit? Durability? Float? Weight? Appearance? Ease of maintenance? Cornering clearance? Foot support? Color choices?|

|FWIW and with what we have to go on, "which are the best pedals?" I would say Time hands down. I really like the way the Time pedals have some float, but they self-center and "push" your foot back into position if you float out to the side. I do not like the feeling the Look pedals give that your foot is just loose on the pedal.
That's, of course, just my opinion...

|Very slick design with the choice of floating or fixed cleat. Getting in is a tad tricky, but getting out is as smooth as a ski binding. The Record version is pretty light, but pricey. Like them better than Look, Time, SPD, & SPD-R |
The new SpeedPlay Zero is supposed to be nice, but I haven't used them - just played with them at the Sea Otter. Regular SpeedPlays can get jamed if you walk on dirt or sand.
Shimano MTB SPD's are a popular choice for touring since the recessed cleat in a MTB style shoe is easy to walk around in.
The new Time is supposed to be good also.
Ultimately it's all personal choice and biomechanical needs. Every pedal system is a tradeoff - you need to decide what is important to you.
