well I've read a few threads recently about SPD and look pedals but I really dont understand what they are. I gather that its a more secure pedal with a mechanism that locks the shoe to the pedal but Why are they so expensive!? From what Ive read i think SPD is the way to go If I were to upgrade, I bike about 10 mi a day but need to put my foot down alot, however I cant justify Spending $100+ $50 for pedals and shoes. Are their cheaper SPD (or look pedals, couldnt find much on these) Like in the $30 Range?
Also when Looking at shoes All the sizes seem to be in the 40's, I wear A size 15 in a guess what would be american sizes. How would this compare to the cyce shoe sizes?
