OK, now that I have got your attention by cunningly using a Vanilla Ice lyric (I'm guessing a lot of you are white and around my age, but thats another story)...

I know there's other forums, but people I trust live here......

I'm thinking of changing pedals and going to speedplays - for reduced stack height, but more importantly for double sided entry now that the roadie is getting a caning on the commute and my track standing confidence is at an all time low :D .

Anyone have any strong views on them or have any other suggestions (and where can I get them relatively cheaply? - most online retailers dont seem to stock them.

Currently using Look A5.1, on which I'm completely ambivalent.

thanks heaps. Last time I'll use Vanilla Ice. Honest.

Bahahahah :D

In a masterstroke of musical genius, i once saw an interview with Vanilla, explaining his tune was radically different to David Bowie's "Under Pressure", Bcos his...
"goes
'dun-dun-dun-dudda-dun-da'
whereas my song goes
'dun-dun-dun-dudda-dun-da-sscchhkk' "

as for suggestions, EGGBEATERS
Also very low stack height, and ALL-sided entry.
Try em once. you wont leave. Tell em Dutchy

My fav ice story is an edition of the US tv show Celebrity Boxing. Ice was pitted against "wuju talkin 'bout" Willis from Different Strokes over 3 x 1 minute furious rounds. Summary - Willis tore Ice a big red new one. Great entertainment. Almost as funny as watching Partridge Family's Danny Bonaduci knock the b'jesus out of Greg from the Brady Bunch. Frickin hilarious. Why did that show only last one season?

that sounds good :D

I saw a hilarious ****-take of Ice-Ice-baby by Jim Carey.
I usually cant stand Jimbo but his 'Ice' was hilarious

Be on the lookout for new show...

"Pimp my ride"

I've been watching that over here, along with Top Gear and its rival show. Has anyone seen the EFIJY? It's a modern take on the FJ Holden. Looks fully sick mate!
No, I'm not converting from bikes to cars, I think the ride tonight froze my brain. ;)

Oh, I STILL like SPDs. I reckon they'd be cheaper than most other options. With double sided entry on the M520's I just bought over here, they're great for commuting use - ie. you can walk almost normally in the shoes and they don't look like spaceships (road shoes).

WTF is that show. Saw it the other night and all they did was buy a kid a
new car and make it look like something somone with half a brain would want
to steal. I'm waiting for the cycling equivalent... "Pump my Flat"

Mate of mine recently changed to speedplay zero Ti pedals (after using
ultegra sl's)
Rekons theyre really good.
I'd also try out the eggbeaters if you want multi sided pedals

Who the hell are Vanilla Ice? Let me guess, some group that plays (C)rap
music?
What makes you think I'm anywhere near your age, Whitey Boy?

I read that as "Pump my fat". Someone's toey.. ;)

I found it quite funny that they chose to pimp the ride of some silly cow who has had multiple accidents (including a roll over!!) in her truck. She reckons she spent 10grand fixing up the POS after the accidents. Why? Why fix her car? Why? Stupid.

Chalk up another vote for eggbeaters. Don't get the Ti ones - they
bust. Stainless steel are fine and light. Easy entry, low height, don't
pop out, nice float, easy maintenance, good cleats. I have a set on my
MTB; also a set of Candys on another bike.

I swapped from Looks to Time Impact on my road bike and like them -
rarely miss an entry, unlike Looks. The Time cleats are XX-ey. I will
probably swap to eggbeaters on this bike too.

Donga.

I actually understood the last two words, and it ain't what I call rock and
roll. :)

Yeah Monsterman, why didn't you quote some Barry Manilow lyrics instead?

.....Ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop? yo I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
Dance go rush to the speaker that booms
I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom....

Well, Mr Down with the kids..... I think it's technically a Queen song, not a David Bowie song...

I'll bet these whipper-snappers don't know who MCHammer of Milli Vanilla are either.....


Some interesting lyrics though:

Vanilla Ice? Ptooey!!

The thinking man's white rapper would have to be "Snow"!!

Could never work out those lyrics to "Informer" though - why did he
keep singing something about his "itchy-bum-bum-down"?? *laughs*

Bowie? 'Under Pressure' was Queen, unless Bowie wrote it and Queen performed
it.
