Many people do. Funny how the new Shimano pedal goes...sprockets2

back to the same basic design of the Look pedals, one that Shimano used before it embarked on its SPD-road thingy. The Campy pedals use the same basic design that the Looks have used for years. They may not be the latest thing, but they do the job pretty well. Even the cheapo Looks last a long time and are functionally satisfactory.
Aren't the Look the most popular pedals ? I see them everywhere.PeterRider

Had until recently the cheap Look 206. Sold them on ebay. I was very pleased with them, just switched to the speedplay which are better for the knees (but more expensive). Have a very high opinion of Looks.

Yup, they're bomb proof. I have 2 pairs. NMeyebob

4 road bikes, 1 track bike, 1 tandem = lots of Look pedals (actually, 1 set is Mavic but they were made by Look). Since I'm not racing anymore, I really don't care that much about the weight and the red Arc cleat has enough float for me.
Too bad they don't make the cleats "walk" proof (nm)Kristin

I've been using Looks since I started road riding in 1990 and currently run them on two bikes. Lots of pedals have come and gone but Looks remain a time-tested, solid and reliable design.

I've been using Looks since they first introduced the clipless pedal system in 1986 (I think that was the year). I've tried other pedals and always come back to Look. They say you feel most comfortable with the first pedal system you ever used, (which means I should be riding in toe clips?)

yep, used them since day one and as I build up the new ride, another set of Look pedals are planned.
I use them. nmKen of Fresno

I have them and I love them. No knee problems whatsoever and they have been quite reliable. Should they ever crap out, I will buy another set...they are GRRRRREAT!!!
