I posted the above as a warning in case the OP hadn't thought about the Shimanos having less
maximum float.

Any comments on the 'lateral' movement?

I can't say I've noticed anything to date. I read the comments about this in VeloNews but thus far
it hasn't been detectable to me.

You can also check out some reviews here:

The Look pedals are great. Looks have several big advantages. Ability to adjust the float on the
fly. Speed play zeros have the ability to adjust float, but you need a philips screwdriver. Not a
real big concern, but the screw is in vulnerable place. I am not sure what Richard Bryan was
thinking when he designed the zeros. The SPD-r's have tension release adjustment only. SPD-rs use
cleats for float adjustment. The Look CX series are quite advanced and weight is reduced to 149
grams per pair.

FYI

I found this today. I have the "new style" cleat and that's perhaps why I don't notice any lateral
movement. Scroll down the page and there's info on the SPD-SL cleat replacement.

Watch your language. You don't have to insult gays when pointing out bigotry.

Of course all this anti-French rhetoric is already hurting us. It seems the French were not all that
ammused about "freedom fries" etc. Airbus recently rejected a bid from the American company Pratt &
Whitney for military transport plane engines in favor of engines from non-American companies. I've
read that Pratt & Whitney's engine was superior to the others and their bid was 20% below the
competitors but Airbus still rejected the bid.

Boycots work both ways you know.

I have been riding the new DuraAce 7750 system and I have to say that they are excellent. I have
also tried SPD's, and speedplay. The 7750's have a very comfortable feel, and I experience no
lateral movement that others have described. I also have the newer cleats, which shimano provide
free of charge to swap with the ones that came with them.

They have a very efficient power transfer. They do not have a lot of float, but I prefer that. I
have never clicked out accidentally. I really, really like these pedals.
