My brother wants to try a new pedal system (he's got Campy now) and I/he is curious about the coombe pedal system. They're a bit expensive, but I like the idea that they have a very low platform (compared to looks, etc.)

Any comments would be appreciated.

I've asked this question here before, and I've seen others ask it, too. There's never been a response.
I'm getting a little tired of my Campy cleats wearing out, although I love the pedals. The Coombe system has such a large, rigid cleat that I've been hoping it could substitute for the Campy platform. They're also light and double-sided.
I did a Google search, and found one messageboard comment from another site from someone who owns and likes them, but that's all.

I've got around 800 miles on a new set of Coombes, and so far I like 'em a lot. The pedals are clean and simple, bearings are silky smooth, and the cleats are almost walkable on Sidi Genius 3's. Float is adjustable by changing some little buttons in the cleat - as shipped, heel-in is fairly restricted, and heel-out allows a little more movement than my old Ritcheys did. Other buttons were included to adjust for more or less float either way.

Clicking in requires a little heel out and back movement, then things are locked up nice and tight. I hope Coombe sells enough of these to stay in business - they're really some nice pedals.
