also, how are looks in general. If im having hotspots with shimano mtb style pedals will the (slightly) larger look platform help? Are they easy to get into?CC09 said:found some good prices on both, are the sprints worth the extra 35 bucks? 30 gram difference I think, but i don't really care about the weight, is there different/better bearings, release, etc?
I like looks, tho I don't happen to be riding them at the moment. IMO, hotspots have less to do with "platform" than quality shoes, and less to do with quality shoes than proper cleat placement, and less to do with cleat placement than properly sized shoes Too narrow a shoe or too long a shoe to find the width are big hotspot-causers.
No matter what, lose the spd's. No redeeming properties whatever, other than they can be had for a song - and there's usually a reason for that.
Whatever other diffs, sprints do have a higher spring tension. Personal preference, there, though I tend to prefer lighter rather than heavier. Not sure where the sprints end up.
