I use the new Shimano Di2 Electronic pedals. You don't even have to manually clip in.

I use the new Time Bondage™ pedals. You could clip out, but you're not allowed to, you worm.

On the road and the trail AND the tri-races: Shimano Mountain SPD's that came off my wife's hardtail SJ that we set up for hardpack trail riding on the C&O Canal Trail. I learned how to get out of them and that's mucho importanto to me. Plus I don;t have to worry about walking around in a $300 carbon slipper...

(Note - C&O Canal Trail: Mostly flat crushed gravel hardpack from Washington DC to Cumberland Maryland along the scenic Potomac River; truly fantastic. Passes thru Antietam Battlefield, Harper's Ferry, Appalachian Trail, and other cool places).

Look black Delta's. Anything besides black cleats, lets the whole world know that you are a sissy.

road: crankbrothers 4Ti, w/ quattro cleats
MTB: crankbrothers 4Ti, w/ regular cleats

Allows me to use either shoe for either bike in the event I forget one. Also when touring around you can use the mtb shoes and be able to walk around.

Performance Forte pedals that are Look Cleat compatible.

They are cheap at $40.00, last a fair amount of time and are light enough for me. I just don't see a need to spend any more on a set of pedals. If they break they are basically disposable.

Speedplay Frogs on all bikes. Used to use the Speedplay road pedals on my road bikes but I actually like the Frogs better. Before that I used Time road pedals for many years.

frog question:

i have frogs on mtn bike and they have been on there about 6-7months. i did quite a bit of riding and racing all in dry desert. i have having problems with my shoes coming undone. i don't recall this when they were new. it is starting to be a pain. i tried messing with the little set screw to see if i could tighten tolerances up but i don't think it helped.

any ideas? do you think i need new cleats already?

i wonder if i need to adjust the cleat so my heal can swing out more without coming undone? but why does it seemed like it changed since being new. the cleat has always been in the same spot.

so any recommendation you might have would be great. how long do your cleats last?

Very pleased with the Look Keo Classic and the standard grey cleats ( +/- 4.5º rotation float).

Nice, low friction bearings ... pedals rotate to the correct , clip-in orientation under their own weight.

I like to apply a bit of silicone spray on the pedals and cleats every few rides, just as I do on my ski boots and bindings. Quiets all squeaks, and assures clip-outs and clip-ins won't be affected by high friction.

I wanted walkable shoes, so I went with MTB pedals
