Any help would be much appreciated.
I convinced myself that the Northwave fighter shoes were the ones i was after but have just stumbled across the mavic avenge which look great also.
Both are getting good reviews but i really can't make my mind up.
Also im probably going to be fitting the look keo classics partly because the bikes in the velodrome have look keo's and i prefer to wear my own shoes.
What's everyones thoughts on the exustar pedals instead of the look's
they seem to do the job but are half the price. too good to be true?

I am curious about the Crankbrothers eggbeaters. Currently I am using Shimano M520, bu since I also use SPD for road (I have a cyclocross, suck it up) I am a little annoyed that my pedals come in at 500g alone
I sort of like the eggbeaters. They look classy, but they also look seriously small. Are they any good? Experiences?
I use Diadora Protrail 2 shoes so they are rather nice and stiff shoes.
Got myself a set of speedplay pedals and after fitting realised your supposed to use some dry lube of which I have none. Can I use some grease for the bearings as a temp measure for my ride tomoz?
Also how much force is considered normal....... Takes all my 66kg to clip the right pedal in. Considering how bad I am at clipping in this may be amusing to the group tommorrow on our Sunday ride
Pedals are a very personal choice and there are plenty to choose from. If you're thinking of taking the plunge into using clipless pedals then that same large selection can prove a bewildering process, but these Wellgo R096 Clipless Road Pedals are a great first foray into the world of clipless.
To some the thought of being physically attached to their pedals is not one they want to explore. If you do, where do you start in selecting a pair?
Time Atac Alium clipless Pedals are extremely versatile cost conscious versions of the classic design. For the uninitiated, ATAC is an acronym for 'Auto tension adjustment concept' which in lay speak means masses of knee friendly float and remarkably dependable entry/exit since the twin bar expels mud with tremendous panache.
Cyclo crossers and mountain bikers are the obvious audiences but the pedals' qualities coupled with reasonable ground clearance lend themselves very nicely to road duties too.
I am reluctantly selling my Specialised fixed gear bike....the bike is 18 months old but hasn't been used for the past 6 months. The chain ring is 42 and the rear is 16 (there is also a single speed cog on the back wheel), I have ridden this a lot in a rather hilly part of South Yorkshire and haven't found a hill that the gearing can't handle. You'll see from the picture that there is no seat - I'm not sure where it has gone! But, I do have a spare seat that I can throw in if needed, I know people may have their own seat preferences.
