Completely caught me by surprise
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- Size Bought
I had used Look for years since they first came out in the mid 1980's. I switched to Speedplay about 12 years ago when I finally got serious about getting rid of the pain on the outside of my left foot which it turns out was caused by having too narrow of a pedal stance. Speedplay offers longer spindles at 6mm, 12mm longer than standard. This solved my problem. But I suffered with all the squeaking and tweaking and dirt issues but I loved the float. Finally, given that I live in a rural area and stopping means putting a foot down in sandy areas and after an especially egregious Speedplay squeaky cleat issue, I decided to look into pedals gain. I put my old Looks back on. They were nice but still too narrow. I found these with the +4mm wider axles and bought them. Looked to me like it would be a horse apiece with the Looks. I was wrong. These are much more refined. They're easier to clip into than Looks. The platform under my foot is wider and more stable. The cleats are easier to walk in. The whole system is just much more refined. And .... above all .... they offer a wider stance. Relief. The whole thing caught me by surprise. I'm definitely a fan.

Purchased to solve a fit issue
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have an Ultegra CAAD12, and a Trek Crockett with Sram Rival 1. I've always felt decent on my cross bike fit wise but couldn't seem to get my feet sorted on my road bike lately. I had tried wedges under the cleats, different insoles, and had a professional fit. My road bike had the older Ultegra 6800 series pedals and the cross bike has Deore XT 8000. I had some spare Shimano M540 pedals nearby that i used to compare the width of the new pedals after installing them. With the Ultegra 8000 +4 pedals on my road bike the centers of each pedal matched up exactly. So, if you are looking to get your road position closer to your cross bike i hope you find this helpful.
