Do the Campy Record Pro fit pedals hang rear end up?(3 posts)

Do the Campy Record Pro fit pedals hang rear end up?James

My Look's hang front end up and I find it really easy to clip in this way. I read in one of the reviews that the butt hangs up on the Record Pro fits, is this true? Does that make it easier to clip into?

The Campy pedals hang "front end up" just like the Looks. Personally, I don't think the Campy's are the easiest pedals to get into. I've owned them since they were first released, and have them on 4 different bikes. I still occasionally find myself fumbling to get into them at stoplights. I like everything else about them, however, and continue to hope that some day my coordination will improve.

While any pedal requires some skill to enter, plus practice with the particular pedal, my observation would be that ProFits are about the same as Look for entry difficulty. I base this on the comments of people who have owned both, on the basic design similarities in the cleat, and on the amount of fumbling I do with the ProFits and those riding with me when using Looks.
