    Look X-trac race pedals. Nice SPD option

    Haven't seen any discussion here about these so figured I'd post.
    My 8 year old 540s were hurtin. I was going to get another pair of those or xt but these caught my eye on ebay. Only 6g heavier than a 540 but much more platform for your shoes. These were $70 on ebay. They have two lighter versions with carbon bodies as well. First test tomorrow but digging them so far. They come with look cleats that appear identical to the black shimano ones according to my eyes. I'm just using my shimano ones. Set them 8 clicks from easiest setting. There are 14 or 15 total clicks. 10 clicks was pretty hard to get out of. They have more float than the 540s, not sure if that's good or bad for me. Don't want my heels hitting the crank arm. We'll see

    I've had a couple pair for a while now. No complaints. One side of one pedal was much easier to pull out of than the others, all good after adjusting it to match the others. Total stack height is a couple mm thicker than Shimano XT XC pedals.

    Yeah. But I've recently made the switch from "xc" shoes to more walkable "new school" shoes (Shimano AM7). The additional platform without a weight penalty is nice.
    $130 for the carbon ti isn't bad if you want more support. If you're using super stiff shoes then I agree it isn't compelling.

    Oh I see, you get more platform. I'd have to give them a try first.
