    Well, I decided to go with the Speedplay X5. I went to my LBS last night and they were on sale for $90. The guy working said he and all of the guys he rides with use speedplays and they all love them. I haven't used them yet, but I'm very excited to do so. Thanks again for all of the advice!

    The new time are great, they have the most precise cleat placement of them all which makes it the greatest. There is no guess work on the cleats like Look etc..

    Then what are the kind where you just have some teeth on your shoes that grab the pedal as opposed to the kind where you have to pop your foot into place and yank it sideways to get out?

    Learning something every day.

    The Look A3.1 pedals were the first pedals I ever used. They aren't too heavy and they aren't too expensive, but they will last pretty much forever.

    I have a set of Speedplay zeros (CSC version) that I picked up for 60 bucks. My first set of clipless. Be sure to purchase a set of coffee shop caps.
