I have been riding the latest version of Shimano's XTR pedal for the past year and although I really like the pedal the one gripe I have is the sharp edges on the pedal that inflict serious damage to my shins everytime I have the unfortunate luck of having the pedal strike my shin. Not that this happens often but I ride alot and race as well an inevitably every couple of months I come close to crashing or something else comes along where I end up getting whacked in the shin by my pedal. You would think they could do a better job of desiging the pedal to minimize sharp edges and recess the cleat mechansim so it is less likely to gouge your skin. Perhaps even add a rubber surface to minimize some of the shock? I would be willing to sacrifice a few grams for some sort of rubberized bumper to limit the damage they inflict every time they make hard contact with my body. Anyone else have this issue?
