Went from Look to Speedplay and never looked back.

I never had any issues with the Looks. I just didn't like how they clipped in and didn't like the spring tension once clipped in. The SP's...all I have to do is step down. The adjusted down open float keeps my knees happy.

My girlfriend got her road bike in 2012...since she is not the most coordinated person...I got her the Light Actions. She never would have never gotten off her platforms if she had to use Look or Shimano. :mrgreen:

I've gotten two rides on the sp with new cleats. I hope they break in because the entry engagement was not easy. Once in, the exit is pretty much like every other pedal.

I have a bad knee, and the Speedplay -for me- works best.
I enjoy the easier float regulation in Speedplay + the 2-sided clickon.

I think they are fairly easy to click in and out compared to look.

I've been using Speedplays for a long time. For me, there is a knack to entry. Rather than step straight down to clip in, I push forward while stepping down. Might help.
