For a ready made part, see Fly Pedals. This is essentially just a metal platform, which you bolt cleats onto, then clip them into your pedals. They are threaded with holes for 2-bolt or 3-bolt cleats, so should work with most mountain bike or road bike clipless pedals (including SPD-SL). Note these are not yet available, but you can pre-order them from the ...

If you don't find any factory made component, you can always get down the do-it-yourself route. Here is a link to set of instructions on how to make ones for Shimano PD 520/540: http://www.instructables.com/id/Pedal-platforms-for-Shimano-PD-520540/ The basic idea of it is to get hold of an extra pair of cleats, affix them with appropriate bolts to a ...

Turns out this is not the correct style (question is for SL) This is the Shimano part number SHIMANO SM-PD20 I have some and they are a pain. The are hard to insert and remove and you have to spin the pedal to get the correct side up. I would rather swap out pedals. This is a reflector but not sure if it is meant to step on reflector insert

TL;DR : Having a quality pedal means that it will always be in the same position when you need to clip in and will make you life much easier when starting. Part of the problem might be the "cheapness" of the pedals, let me explain : I ride look and have been using Look Keo Carbon pedals, they are middle range (more expensive than the Easy and less than ...

I use these spd's: http://road.cc/content/review/43776-shimano-pd-m520-spd-pedal They are double sided, so you never get the wrong side to clip in They are cheap They are durable The shoes you buy with them usually allow (easyish) walking when required Can buy both road & mountain biking shoes - with a single pedal type I know that's more of a ...

I think the key to your problem is the asymmetrical nature of SPD-SL pedals. So I don't think the Look pedals will help you. Look at symmetrical pedals, such SpeedPlay, Crank Brothers Egg Beaters, SPDs and the Time Atac range. This style of pedal is much easier to clip into because you can just mash your foot at the pedal. Have a look at this answer for ...

This is part comment, part answer, but too long to fit in a comment, so here we go. Personally, I use SPD, and when I ride with a group, everyone else has SPD-SL or LOOK. I'm usually clipped in and across the intersection before they're clipped in. Either I'm just really good at clipping in, or SPD are designed to be easier to get clipped in to. Even the ...
