I’ve almost finished my damn Cecil Walker project that I’ve been working on for too long, and I’ve started to think about the whole pedals issue. What do most single speed/fixie riders use- MTB clips or road clips? I currently use the standard MTB clips, but they just don’t seem secure enough. I also ride at the DISC and MTB pedals are really crap on the track…I was hoping road clips might resolve this?
Any suggestions would be most kind
time MTB pedals are awesome.
spd have the hinged section at the back. that means that the sec tion your foot pulls against is the moving bit.
with time ones the sprung section is at the front which means that you pull against the fixed section.
almost impossible to pull out of, and much tougher than crank brothers.
One pair of eggbeaters shared between two bikes. Get the SLs if you can. Stay away from the models that incorporate a platform like the Candys or the Smartys. Recent experience (not mine) has suggested that the springs and the cleat retension bars are compromised to make room for the platform.
Thanks for all the replies guys.
It seems there are many ways to tie your feet to the cranks…
Most of you use some kind of MTB pedals- why is that? Are they more durable/easier to get out of than road pedals?
Only bec the shoes are easier and more comfortable to walk around in. If you commute alot, MTB style shoes and pedals are the way to go. If you want absolute comfort and don’t mind sacrificing cycling efficiency, get some normal walking shoes and flat pedals.
