Over the years, I've tried every Shimano SPD peddle. I use them only on my road bikes as I want to be able to walk around. They are good, but over time the side I clip out of to stop, which gets the most ware, eventually seems to develop an annoying clicking sound....So I'm trying this Look brand. So far so good. I like the appearance , and the larger platform for my shoe. It may be subjective but seems to be easier to clip into on the first try. Will they develop the annoying clicking? I don't know as I've not had them that long.
