Fantastic Upgrade -- great for wide feet
These replaced an earlier low-end, steel-body spd-sl pedal from 2007. The design has improved tremendously. The two big improvements are (a) the platform is wider and (b) it's easier to feel which side you're engaging in. Thanks to these improvements, these pedals are much easier to use. The wider p...

shimano 105 vs Shimano R550 road pedals extra £20 ?
Posted 8 years ago I have the R550s, never used the 105s, so can’t compare, but have had no problems with the 550s, cannot fault them. Posted 8 years ago Nice to know cheers. Probably just 10grams lighter for the sake of 20quid Posted 8 years ago Got a pair of 550’s in the post today, seem ok

I tried to hammer it back in with my aluminum m...
