    There have been a couple of posts somewhere on here recently that said the Speedplay LightAction were really nice.

    Looks like I'll be getting her those Speedplays!

    They would be a good choice, as well as the Speedplay Frogs which people seem to rave about as well. Mountain bike shoes will enable her to walk "normally" in her recessed-cleat shoes as compared to hobbling/clacking along on road shoe cleats.

    Have been on 3 rides with my new Light Action pedals. I did tip over once (embarrassing), but they are quite easy to get out of. Getting into them takes a little more weight than I thought it would, but I'm getting the hang of it!

    Everyone falls as least once. When I first started riding clip less I fell over 4 times trying to clip in while going uphill. Don't be embarrassed

    Thanks, Skunk! That is exactly what happened to me. Not enough momentum starting uphill, and I lost my balance.

    Please let us know if the clipping in improves. My understanding is that this is exactly the problem light weight women were having with the original zeros.

    We have all fallen in the beginning. It will get better!

    I traded my Speedplay lollipops for the Frogs on my road bike and I LOVE it. It's the easiest to clip in and out of. Plus, I can walk around with recessed cleats. And the neatest bonus? You don't clog up the pedals with debris and dirt.
