|I was wondering if anyone out there used fixed Look cleats (or any other fixed cleat/pedal). I was thinking about trying it out since I will need new cleats soon. I don't have knee problems at all and I think I may like being clipped in tight. Thoughts?|

|I prefer the black cleat and being locked in but I'm coming from the clips and straps era so naturally my prejudice lies with anti banana peel sensation. An Old Dog.|

|New Looks come with red cleats and I use them when I have no black ones. If I buy cleats I prefer the black (fixed) cleats. I have no knee problems and some achilles tendon troubles. The black cleats seem to be a little easier on the heel. I'm also from the clips and straps era, but I don't think that's the issue as I never pulled my straps tight enough to entirely eliminate float.|

|I too have a sore achilles sometimes. Funny, I thought that the fixed cleat might help that, also. Just seems logical. The fixed postition would seem to not allow my heel to be tweaked. Not to mention I think I might feel more secure.
I tried to ride a friend's bike with flat pedals the other day. I was really afraid! Amazing that just three years ago being clipped in freaked me out.
