    My Shimano M424s are just about dead. One side of the left pedal doesn't clip in at all anymore. Time for an upgrade. I kinda like the hybrid platform/clipless style. Not married to SPDs per se, but...

    I threw the platforms on the bike this weekend and tooled around the neighborhood and rode about 90 seconds on some singletrack, and didn't like it. I felt like I was bouncing off the pedals here and...

    What type of pedals are you running? Clipless, platforms or maybe even toe clips? Why?
