ive got my cube analog and cycle everywhere.. offroad/on road.

the idea of clip ins appeals: get more out of my bike speed wise etc but at the same time i dont want to have to wear special shoes if im just riding to town...
do i change my pedals over to clip ins and get shoes or do i stay as i am?

if you think clip ins then any suggestions as to what pedals/shoes? im on a budget but all suggestions good then ill make my own list

thanks

Hi mate defo cliplless . Get shimano spd's and shimano shoes. You can get M520 pedals for under 20 quid. Make sure you get a size bigger in the shoes though as they are a small fit. What size shoe are you ?

No mate they need cycling shoes. Have alook at some shimanos with a cage on for extra foot support for normal shoes.

you could use these with normal shoes for a short distance http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SHIMANO-PD-M424-SPD-MTB-CYCLING-PEDALS-/1810 04299060?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&hash=item2a24b26b34

yeh this is my dilema.. i want the benefitts of clip in but would want pedals (as you suggested) which i could ride for short distances without special shoes on, ive ridden a mates bike with cages and just didnt like them, more annoying having all the bulk on the pedals. thanks anyway though Smile

I was thinking this the other day, surely someone could make a pedel that clips onto spd pedels, I know you can get a pedel that is spd on one side and normal on the other,

Thinking of going down this route, got a rayte bad habit with my right foot, it always seems to go into a position of having the pedal half way under my foot, no matter how many times I correct it, it goes back to it. Caught my toes a few times when going over uneven ground.
