Looking at the aerolight pedals , and I wanted to know if anyone has tried them. I am a little concerned about the apparent lack of float. Has anyone had a problem with this? Also, I talked to the rep a local expo, and he said that the less rotational weight of the pedals would dramatically improve performance. :idea: Sounds like a sales pitch to me, but I was wondering if anyone has heard of scientific evidence that would back this up.

I've tried them, I use them on my WW bikes. On my training bikes I use Keywins (which were my pedal of choice for everything).

I have not had any problem switching between the two pedal systems.

I found them to be great pedals, except in traffic (which can be real bad here in Los Angeles) because of the stop-starts and having the bigger Keywin platform means I don't have to automatically think of clipping in, hence my continued use of Keywins for my training bikes.

I don't know if the weight saving helps, but it can't hurt....ask me again in a month!
