Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
You know how it is, always thinking what might eek a bit more performance. For years, I've used speed play pedals and appreciated the fluidity and ease of enter and release. So, one day, I'm imagining that perhaps there's a small amount of energy transfer lost in the process, so, how 'bout trying a wider platform and firm grip of Shimano DuraAce pedals? Well, I'm not sure if that's achieved, but what I do notice is a firmer sensation in the pedals and the trade off seems to be a stiffer enter and release. I need to pay attention to this! -- Even though I've backed off the adjustment screw on the Shimano pedals. Generally, I'm sticking with these pedals, but on the relaxed 'putting in the miles' type rides, an easier enter/release system has it's peace of mind advantages.
