Will I be ok using platforms on this ride? Never used spds and they seem to be the choice of most when I was look at previous years aftermath pics :?


I would highly recommend it in the Peaks. Plus you can wear sexier shoes. ;-)

Sorry - flats are the way to go in the Peaks. None of the people I ride with use SPD's. Some people are ok with spuds but it is quite rocky in places an being able to dab and set off more easily is a real bonus.
I suppose if you got used to them in that area SPD's would be fine but I've never used them there.

In terms of pedals, go with whatever you are happy riding on, flats or SPDs.

I personally prefer spuds and have always used them in the Peaks and everywhere else since they came out.
Apart from in the snow. I use flats in the snow because spuds quickly turn into slippery ice blocks.

I hoping there won't be any snow in September though.

Hmmm :? , think I will stick with my platforms then as I have never used spds and probably wouldn't be as confident on them. I do have a set of VP pedals I could put on tho with some toe traps?

->any123 that is some toy you have there :shock: I take it you'll be getting the brews on then? :lol:
