What do you think about putting these on...

What do you think about putting these on a road bike? Good or Bad idea?

Best Answer Responded on

They'd work fine, they're just not as light as the pedals most people put on their road bikes.

As Angus said they would work fine, but your foot would move around alot more than they would if you had road pedals and the tension is not as tight on them because you have to get out quicker when your on the mountain. Again they would work fine they would just have more play in them than a road pedal.

I used these on my roadbike and when adjusted properly have very little play in them. They are slightly heavier than the Ultegra's I just swapped them with and when used on the road it does take a little practice clipping in and out because you have a much smaller platform. Their is nothing wrong with using them on a roadbike as many riders I group ride with dual ride (road-mountain) and rather than swap pedals and cleats just utilize one. Another bonus is price to dedicated road peds. I bought these peds and Speciaized shoes for the price i paid for the Ultegra's!!! They are on my bike in this pic!
