Pedals with free float suggestions?(4 posts)

Pedals with free float suggestions?wilsonc
May 30, 2003 8:16 AM
I'm looking for new road pedals (from Time ATACs), and wanted to compile a list of pedals that have very free rotational float, like speedplay. I tried Time Impacts, but I didnt like the feel of the float. I'm assuming Looks are similar. Also, as I do triathlons, so a cleat/pedal system that isnt too succeptable to dirt clogging the system would be a plus (I've heard that can be a problem with the Speedplay X pedals/cleats)

BeBop pedals have alot of float....PEDDLEFOOT

Hard to beat them. 20 degrees of completely free float, easy entry and exit, no more worries about dirt than any other pedal (better than my SPD's). On top of all that, they have one of the lowest stack heights (you have to shave the sole of MTB shoes to fit), lowest weight, and strongest spindles on the market. Just my $.02...

and have never had a problem (though I usually leave my shoes clipped into my pedals during the race).
Even when having to walk in the speedplays, I haven't had an issue with getting stuck out of them (except when a cleat was worn out).

If you don't like all the float of the speedplays, they have a new pedal which offers an adjustable float.

I also have Speedplay frogs on my mountain bike, and there is no reason you couldn't use those on the road.
They definately won't get jammed if that is what you are worried about.
