Bicycle Pedal Reviews
Once you select a bike that meets your cycling needs, the next best thing to do is to choose pedals that go in accordance to your riding style. Believe it or not, choosing the right pedals can make a big difference on your riding experience. There are a variety of pedals out there but the two most common types of pedals used are the platform and clipless pedals. To choose the right type of pedal it is important to gauge your experience as rider and your biking needs. Clipless pedals work by snapping into your biking shoes to give you more control and a better grip of your bike. Whereas, with the platform pedal there is no attachment to your shoe, these are manufactured with materials that offer good grip but you will not get that grip a clipless pedal offers. Clipless pedals are designed to efficiently transfer your pedaling power to the ground and the shoes are designed to protect and support your feet. Whereas, platform pedals are ideal for beginners, dirt jumpers, and free-riders.
