Bicycle pedals are essential to the mechanics of any bicycle. The most common bike pedal is the platform pedal (flat pedal). Different cycling styles will often determine which bike pedals are best used. Flat pedals are found on most bicycles when first purchased due to their universal practicality and ease of use. Clip in pedals (clipless pedals) provide a high level of control because the cycling shoe clips directly and securely into the pedal system. This allows the cyclist to pull up as well push down during the pedal stroke. Clip in pedals are available in both a road and mountain bike design with the road system designed more around aerodynamics and the mountain system designed more around avoiding mud and debris.
