Subject: Re: [CR] good pedals for wide feet

hi all , i am fond of campy aero style pedals and i have a size 13 foot,normal d width,and i find the quill style a little confining. as others have noted,ta track pedals ,superbe cyclones, etc...cut the quill off ,you can't go wrong.....kevin ruberg howell nj ken ,i have a brand new set of yellow jersey plastic cleats for conventional pedals but fit look drilling pattern(2 of the 3 holes) w/screws and washers...forward to back adjustment and a little side to side or angling within the confines of the slots. a recent back injury has left me w/nerve damage to one foot and ankle and i am in the process of trying out looks. if interested 30.00 mailed ,i paid 29.95 plus shipping


I measured my Campagnolo Record pedals today and found that these are only 3" wide so I then measured my feet and was dismayed to find that these are 4.25" wide and hence I now understand why my feet will not sit comfortably for very long on the Campags. Is the idea that one should use shoe plates in combination with the Campags ? I have a brand new set of TA shoe plates but do not possess a pair of old leather cycling shoes to which these can be nailed. Does anyone still make this kind of shoe ?

I used to ride on Chaterlee pedals when I was a teenager which I think are similar in width to Campag pedals but in those days I just used ordinary walking shoes and so I am left wondering if feet spread as one gets older ?

My winter bike is fitted with cheap and chearfull Loytard pedals and since these are a healthy 4" wide I have not experienced any problems fitting into and pushing on these pedals but they are a bit basic.

Can anyone suggest a good make of wide fitting pedals suitable for and contemporary with a late 1960's steel framed racing bike that will accomodate a wide foot / shoe ?
