    Pedals don't really care what kind of bike you put them on. I wouldn't use a Look style cleat on an off-road bike but that just because walking in those kind of shoes is a pain under normal conditions, let alone on rocky trails. I'm also not a big fan of road shoes and SPD cleats...not much surface area to walk on

    Mountain bike shoes and SPD or even Egg Beaters are far better than roadie stuff.

    I will look at some mountain bike shoes and SPD or Egg Beaters.

    I agree with the statement on mtb shoes, those are the ones I throw on if I am grabbing groceries or walking around. Unless you are going to stay on the bike the whole ride, road shoes can be a real annoyance.
