Shimano Announces New ME700 Clipless Pedals
@WAKIdesigns: I'm not being a dick (you're one to talk though, since half the people that frequent this site would prefer to see you banned for life simply from your pure ignorance, the other half enjoy the entertainment of your ignorance), just stating facts from what I encounter with the products I purchase. Aesthetics are less important than functionality, could really not give a shit if a pair of shoes looks good but fit/feel as if they were carved from fucking wood, they are useless to me. I have no problems walking around in Shimano shoes with the cleats on in regards to cleat size. The channel made in the bottom of the shoe keeps them tucked away nicely. If you haven't ridden with them, pipe down and wear what you bought, I'm simply stating observations from my experience with the product. Maybe it will encourage some people to try other things other than what the comment section dictators (you and the likes) have determined works for everyone else.

Shimano Announces New ME700 Clipless Pedals
@just6979: Spring tension has a lot to do with how much your foot moves around while engaged to the pedal, not just clipping in and out. Sounds like you lack experience with clips. AM shoes are designed to be flexible as pedaling efficiency is not the sole objective. Comfort and protection are considered more than a shoe designed for efficiency. Shoes with stiff shanks are practically useless off the bike, you may as well walk around wearing ice skates or snow boarding boots. If you don't walk around before and after a ride, or spend a whole day at a bike park, you may not understand the value in that. I'm riding Shimano's SH-AM7 shoe and they are way more comfortable than the FiveTen Maltese Falcons they replaced. Those shoes are awful and I don't understand why anyone would wear them. Shimano shoes also allow for enough flex to wear them off the bike comfortably. We can argue until we're blue in the face, and of course you have now changed your tune and stated you are simply talking about the shoe/pedal combo "displayed" above supports your argument, when I clearly stated in my first comment that my set up does contact, in which you falsely argued. You're wrong. They wouldn't offer a platform pedal with an SPD if it didn't offer any benefit to a specific buyer segment. Also, they wouldn't sell for shit either (which they do)

@just6979: Another guy on PB that's likes to tell me what I do and don't feel on my bike, even though I've used 3 generations of Shimano pedals and can feel a clear difference between them. Also, completely tossing aside small details like retention spring tension, shoe design/shank stiffness, and shoe/pedal combinations. Thanks for your wisdom.

You can feel that platform under your shoe when you're off the saddle. Nice to have that weight distributed over more area compared to an egg beater where you're literally just standing on a spindle. I ride XTR SPDs with Shimano shoes and they are great

@deadmeat25: I don’t argue with people who pick fights over the internet from thousands of miles away. Sorry your life is miserable bud, hope you have a great day!

Review: Specialized Turbo Kenevo Expert - An Electrified Freeride Machine
@deadmeat25: I’m saying A LOT more speed is required to get that big turkey airborne than what I am accustomed to. I’m sure suspension tuning will cure some it, but lugging a 50 lb bike over a jump vs a 30 lb bike is a hell of a difference. If you’ve ever ridden an e-bike and taken it to your local familiar jumps you would understand that there is definitely an adjustment period for the added weight

@RadBartTaylor: motors also throttle up to the lip, or while traveling over the lip. Try pedaling up a lip and let me know how that goes.
