I think it outweighs me, but it's perfect for my stated purpose.

I don't know what kind of pedals to put on it though. I'm a fan of clipless, but this should get some platform jobs, I think.

Is something like this worth looking at?

Personally I like both the Time and Crank Bros stuff. Very similar in action, weight, etc. Cleats aren't interchangeable IIRC

Remember: you WILL fall. Prolly at a stop when leaning the wrong way. DAMHIK how embarrassing this can be when you do it at a stoplight.

I'm a cyclist that rides motos, not a moto rider that rides bicycles.
