Pedals for Triathlons: Speedplay, Look or Coombe?(2 posts)

Pedals for Triathlons: Speedplay, Look or Coombe?happychicago
Mar 20, 2003 3:30 PM
I'm currently using doublesided SPD pedals, but have had clip (in & out) problems. Plus, my feet feel somewhat "tight" after long rides. I'm training for my first Ironman and usually ride between 20 & 100 miles.

I've researched for hours (too many hours) and can't decide which pedals to purchase: Speedplay (x-0, x-1, x-2), Look (PP396, A5, cx-6), or Coombe Pro.

I currently have Sidi T-1 shoes..I am 6'1, 175 lbs., and am somewhat interested in walking ability through triathlon transitions. However, I am most interested in a comfortable, fast, durable pedal.

Any advice is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.
Around here Speedplays are popularMaartin

All the main (or rich) competitors around here seem to have Speedplays. They look awkward when walking but most do. Velcro strapped shoes are the key. Personally I have old Looks but I am familiar with them and am slow anyway.
