I'm hoping to acquire some good price pedals/shoes in the sales to replace my rather dated and rapidly fading retro (early 90's!) Sidi's and 80's Time Attack pedals... Pretty old but I got them on a shoe-string when I was just getting into riding and they've served me well.
I'm a bit lost though and would like pointed in the right direction. I'm going to be a lot of longer rides in the run up to the Etape this year so I'd spend extra if it will make a big difference in terms of weight/comfort but I'm really not easily swayed by brand/aesthetics.
Basically, the Sidi's are heavy and I've never liked the Time pedals as they are really stiff to clip in and out of.I like the look of Crank Bros and Speedplay pedals as they are really compact but then folk seem to be of a mind that a wider pedal is better for comfort which will be important for riding the Etape and the like.
Any road.cc favoured combos out there?
