    Is that why I keep finding myself laying on the ground in a puddle of drool??

    No, that, I'm pretty sure, is from the alcohol.

    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 don't know if the other brands make a hybrid. Any recommendations?

    I'm leaning towards the M647. Good reviews on MTBR, but they're pricey and heavy. Thoughts?
    I ski double black diamonds.

    I still have the ones you recommended to me last year, they are getting really beat, plastic cage hanging off on one, another barely keeps you clipped in. Really liked the hybrid type pedals and I think the cage helps you clip in quicker.

    Give skidmarks a call/pm if you want something quick. I know he had the shimanos with the metal cages in his show case for iirc around $100, minus the AZ discount it could be a good deal. I can also pick them up on my way home if you want and get them to you on the weekend ride..

    I got these babies (in theory based on the e-mail notification I received this AM) waiting at my hosue when I get home today!



    Still way too much of a noobie to even fathom clipless and how many bumps/bruises/blood they'd cause me

    one of my buddies has been riding the Times for years and also loves them.

    I find the basic shimano spd to be pretty durable....they do get clogged in ice and snow though.
