    Pedals. What are you using?

    I have some cheap composite platforms that are o.k. but my feet were slipping off them a bit. I switched over to a cheap set of metal platforms with screws and they are sticky, but the bearings seem a little stiff.

    Do I need to spend 100+ to get a "good" pair?

    Which should I go with?

    Old fashioned track pedals. Weigh nothing, don't pack with snow, and very little metal to suck the heat out of your feet.

    Using the new spank oozy trail. Really like them. Pair of 5-10 carvers (carvers are a warm shoe) with the flap over the laces makes for a relatively dry ride. I don't really get cold feet so this combo with a slightly warm sock works perfectly for me.

    I picked up some Shimano Saints. Good price on those. Took the washers out from under the spikes as others recommended.

    And



    The M520s are dirt cheap and dead reliable, they clear well in snow (we don't get warm snow, so it just pushes out, plus the design is far better than 10 years ago). The VPs are for the coldest conditions. I like that they are thinner, the MG-1s are too thick IMO, especially when you add big snow-boots.
