In reply to andy: that looks a bargain. i forgot to mention i'd prefer a combo pedal for when not wearing SPDs. is your suggestion suitable?

Not ideal - these'd be ok:

mavic cruize are lovely and comfortable and don't look too funny when you're off the bike either. you can pick them up for around 60 at the moment. they're not great in the cold though - mainly a summer shoe, even with sealskinz in (though i wear them all year round and just walk for a bit when pedalling leaves me too cold!)

In reply to Dom Whillans: mavic alpine trail sounds better?
In reply to andy: I have them on my mountain bike and they sort of uncomfy with flat shoes on. Don't know about the ones Lord of S. recommends, but I can recommend these: http://www.merlincycles.com/bike-shop/mtb-parts/transmission-gears/pedals-mtb/shimano-pedals/shimano...

Mine must have done 10,000 kms on my commuter(s) now and have worked impeccably with little more than the occasions wash and spray of GT85. The flat side is absolutely fine with any old shoes and the SPD side works like and SPD should.

maybe, but i don't own those... i've had a pair of cruizes for about 2 years and have covered many hundred miles on and off road on the bike, and quite a few miles walking, too.
