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.

Thanks.

Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

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.
