What roadie pedals are you peeps using?

Like the title states, what pedals are you guys using/recommend? I'm about 225lbs so I can't be running no lightweight titanium pedal meant for little people. 8)

I picked up some nice look style Shimano ultegra pedals from Jenson for about 80.00 (they retail for over 180.00)  They're fine.

I have only ridden the Looks so don't have anything to compare to, they seem to be a very popular pedal. It seems Look and Shimano pedals are nearly identical as far as cleat and design. Chain Reaction has some great pricing on both, The Look carbons for less than $100. They are light, but seem to be very stout :)

I use Looks as well.  They have only one way in but they are designed so the heavy side drops down all the time so is not hard at all to find how to clip in.  Except when you unclip at a stop sign and need to clip in fast to get across the road when traffic is heavish and you slip off the pavement on as you push off :-)
 
I might try the froggies later with two ways.

i have the shimanos and they work good. Kinda like the Look pedals but they sometimes take some turning of the pedal to get them right side up. Maybe because they are new and not broken in. But what do I know I just started this road biking stuff.
wherever you go.....there you are.

I use the Shimano 105's on my road bike... I'm about 210 and have never had any problems with them.  I picked them up new for about $50 off ebay.

I use the look keo also. Liked the keo fit system for aligning the cleat angles to the shoes correctly.

I got a pair of the Look Keo Carbon Ti pedals with the new (to me) bike, but I don't trust the Ti spindles. I had Speedplay on an old bike back in the day, didn't like the cleats on them. I think I'll get a pair of Looks with a steel spindle and try to sell the ones I have to a skinny person. :)
