LOOK PP206 or Shimano SPD-A515... Opinions??MVN
Nov 3, 2001 3:29 PM
I'm relatively new (ok, really new!) and I'm about to get some shoes and pedals for my road bike. I've heard that some people use mtn. shoes because they are easier to walk on, and you can use them on both road and mtn. bikes. I'm a practical guy, so that sounds like the way to go for me. I've been looking at the LOOK PP206 and the Shimano SPD-A515 pedals. I don't know enough about all this, so I'm looking for opinions on the pedals and some shoes I could look at. I tried on some SIDI's today and they felt fine. My LBS guy (great guy, very helpful) told me to wait until he gets some of the new Specialized shoes in, so I decided to wait and try those. I know the shoe issue is really about fit and comfort, but what about the pedals? Any advantages of one over the other?? I can't go any higher in price due to my budget, so these will have to do. Any thoughts or opinions appreciated. Thanks for your time.

I just put some PP206 looks on my new bike. I am very
impressed with them, entry and exit is very easy. And
they are a lot wider than other looks, so you have a nice big surface to put the power down. They are also made from
plastic and very light 130g.
