Just got a lovely pair of S-works road shoes for my birthday, and I'm deliberating over what pedals I should use to get the most out of them. Managed to narrow it down to the Dura-Ace SPD-SL 9000 pedals which I can get for £130 or so, and the Speedplay Zeros in Chromeoly which are around £110.
The extra float of the Speedplays is really appealing since I used to have a few joint issues, but I haven't actually had any knee issues for quite a while now so I'm wondering if I really need them in that respect. The double sided entry is always handy too, and I'm anticipating it will be particularly helpful at traffic lights where I already have a bit of tendency to get in a flap clipping into my commuting SPDs!!
I'm really stepping up my training at the moment and looking to make up lost ground over the Easter holidays, so I guess what I'm looking for is a pedal that will keep up with the beating my bike and I will take on the road this spring!
Does anyone have any suggestions or anecdotes about using these pedals?
