|I just can't get comfortable with clipless pedals. What are the most reliable and lightest clip-type pedals? From what I've heard, WTB Momentums have the best bearings and are under 300g. Any recommendations?|

|Your best bet is a set of track pedals w/Campy or MKS steel or alloy clips. NOS Nuevo Record or new MKS Kerien both will work well. both are under 300G. Business Cycles in Miami stocks both...

I bought some mks pedals from Harris Cyclery for about $40.00 for my back-up/commuter bike w/ clips that have really done well.

|I have been using Look and have tried Time.
if you are looking for a pedal that is easy to engage your shoes, the choice is Look. most of their models are used by pros.
if you are looking for the best the choice is Time. Time offers the biggest contact surface between shoe and pedal, your shoe is directly over pedal because cleats are inside the pedal and not above like others. with Time you can lower your seat about 10mm. the only issue is that if your knees don't adapt time "bioposition angle" there isn't much to do .for those that have experience with clipless and have good knees the choice is Time. Look is also easy to adust and everybody like them.
try them before buying if you have a friend using them.
forget Shimano because it is a small pedal.
