    Been sorting through the selection of pedals that I have sitting around.

  5. I used to have the 105 versions, with that odd cleat


    Still got a few pairs of these SKS-Lyotard hanging about, from CX (& MTB) racing, before I bought my first SPDs
    Complete with the 'double' toe-cips, & buttons so the strap wasn't forced out

    I have C Record Look on my best bike (all DA 7400 groupset, but the C Record pearl white match the bike) and Look Carbo Pro on my training bike. Got to be the best of the clipless pedals. Bearings have been faultless.

    Yes, I feel it's the pedal / porn equivalent of a 70s Escort readers wives section. Battered old equipment that didn't even look good when new. :laugh:

    Here's my idea of modern pedal porn:

    And here's some retro 80's big hair and neon colours porn:

    The like is for the Look. That modern one looks like it should be on a plastic pedal car. The equivalent of some airbrushed surgically over-enhanced dyed thing.

    Yeah sorry, porn is in the eye of the beholder I guess. I just like the ski binding aesthetic and sheer expense of Time pedals. Even though they're not used by anyone in cycling anymore. :laugh:

    I like the old egg beaters.Bloke on the bike tour was using them.
     
  12. Is this the cyclist equivalent of a foot-fetish thread? :whistle:

    Would a bicycles feet be the pedals or the tyres? Plenty enough tyre discussions on here, but people seem ashamed to admit admiring their looks and focus on ostensibly practical attributes.
