I will say this... if you have more than one bike...find a pedal style/format you like and stick with it. That way you donít need to have numerous pairs of cycling shoes with different cleats for each pedal type. The only problem is that I arrived at that decision back when LOOK was only in the Delta format. I had/have six bikes. So now since Look doesnít make the Delta anymore, I either stay with knockoff brands that produce Delta format pedals and cleats, or pony up the $$$ for several sets of something more universal.

Around here, the de-facto go fast pedal for tri and TT bikes is Speedplay zero with the aero cleat.

Some folks are experimenting in tri with the TT style lace up shoes that are more aero......but to make it doable in transition are installing speed laces just like in your run shoes, and cutting the tongue out.

I used to have DA pedals. Loved them. I now have Look pedals and I sometimes have difficulties to clip in. Maybe it's me, I don't know. But I am missing my DA...
