    Because I only paid attention to the price when buying on-line, I am now the owner of a pair of SPD-SL compatible shoes that I cant use. ;)

    Rather than return them I thought I'd go down the tried and tested route of chucking more money at the problem and get a pair of pedals.

    Any recommendations for less than £50?

    Also, am I going to find the lack of float an issue compared to my old SPDs, which where never set that tight in the first place?

    I have a pair of 105 and a pair of ultegra pedals - the 105 are easier to clip in/out even on low tension settings. 105 are about 40 quid (or the R540? which are similar). Others have said the 105 fall apart - mine haven't (yet).
    THey will have some float but not as much as SPDs - but they are "cleaner" to clip in and out of - I find spds sometimes catch when you think you've unclipped - but for road riding the level of attachement that you feel s a lot better with the SLs
