Anyone use Coombe Pro pedals yet?(6 posts)

Anyone use Coombe Pro pedals yet?fbg111

I see these advertised on rbr, and they look interesting. Some discussion of them in the archives, but no one who actually owns them. Thought I'd ask again, in case that's changed in the past few months. Anyone picked up a pair of Coombe Pro's recently?

i bought a pair last month and am extremely happy with them.There is no play front to back. I experienced a slittle slop with the Looks I used. They take a little getting used to when clipping in, but I feel like I'm using my entire stroke when I pedal now. Look at the reviews posted above. I agree 100% with them.

They look good, and probably what I'll replace my strap pedals with in a few weeks, but I have a question. If I understand correctly, you clip in by placing your foot on them at an angle, and rotate your foot inward? If so, is there any rotational freedom or side-to-side movement?
Search for "Coombe", not "Coombe Pro".fbg111

Thanks Scot, my first search for "Coombe Pro" turned up nothing, but I went back and searched again for "Coombe" and that turned up the threads you refer to. Also, RBR has these in the user reviews section, here:

...in case anyone else is looking for this info.

I have a feeling that this product is not going to make it. My opinion only
