Well, I got my second used bike with look pedals. I have a nice pair of shoes with the look clips from my previous bike...so I decided to try this kind of pedal again. I just can't do it reliably. How in the dickens do you lock in while you are trying to leave from a light in heavy traffic? I actually lost balance and fell against a car at a light...thank god it was stopped. Once I am in , I am fine. The other thing of course is just standing and walking in these shoes...definitely not user friendly. I am looking into another altenative. I saw these nice Crank bros. candy pedals which seem very easy to get into. Now I need advice on a shoe that will have the clips recessed, so you can actually walk in them without being too heavy and clutsy...not really a mountain shoe...something more of a cross...any advice?
