- Adjustable ++
- Double sided
- Still pretty light (especially the Ti blades)
- minimal cleat wear, and cheap cleats
- bigger platform?
So please tell me if there are any compelling arguments I'm missing. Biomechanically I can fit fine on Looks, I'm using 3-hole shoes so no issue there. If I sell my speedplays on Ebay, it'll essentially be a cost-neutral exercise...
BTW. Not interested at all in Shimano, and Time would just be weird on a Look frame.
Other cool thing about the SP's is the Platformer. Lets me ride around without having to use my riding shoes.
I am interested to see how long the Speedplay cleats last; they look pretty robust. Does anyone know if the c-clips in either pedal are identical? It would appear to me you could extend the life of the cleats by exchanging the c-clips if you're like me and only ever unclip one foot whilst riding?
Dual sided entry isn't a feature for speed play its a necessity because they don't automatically drop into position for engagement.
I have pairs of both sitting around but I just like the stability of the look platform and the cleat cost being a fraction...
The float for both brands works well, they're both very secure, the weights are similar for the full systems...
You can't go wrong or call either one a "winner" as much as stating your personal pref...
Was a necessity because I purchased my current bike with the pedals.
Will never change to Speedplay but am thinking of changing to Exustar E-PR200CKTi.
Same platform as Look.Look Keo cleats compatible.
Lighter than even Look Blade Ti. (14 gr lighter-one pair)
Cleats are 2gr lighter.(4gr-pair)
18gr weight gain for the system.
Plus a better price.

What was happening? What version of Speedplay were you using?
Speedplays for 10 years with no problems. They were totally reliable. Last year I switched back to Look. I have several
sets, including the Blade Ti. Basically, I found the cleat/peddle interface would slowly wear on the Speedplays. After
awhile my foot would easily rock side to side (as if one were rolling their ankle). This would happen slowly but eventually
I'd get to the point where it was noticable and annoying. I think the larger Look platform is good for me and they don't seem
to be as vulnerable to that pedal/cleat wear.
Just my $.02.
Pedal and cleat wear is an issue, but stack height far outweighs this con.
Pedals used in chronological order: Speedplay, Keywin, ShimaNo SPDR, Suntour/Time, straps a la Kelly.
