I was looking for a set of clipless pedals and shoes for my 7300FX commuter. I was looking at the Time ATAC-Z in particular. Based on my research, they seem to be fairly well rated. However, I was wondering whether will suit me, given the following considerations:
- I want to be able to ride recreationally without cleats on occasion. It looks like the ATAC-Zs will be suited for this.
- I have flat feet (nearly convex at the arch) and wear a size 13 shoe. Would this matter in terms of pedal/shoe selection and will the ATAC-Z be a good fit? Any recommendation on shoes (maybe under $100).
- Since I live in upstate NY and we get quite a bit of snow in winter, I was wondering whether these clipless pedals will work through winter or whether I would have to switch to the OEM platform pedals.
I will probably go to a bike shop to check out the pedals, shoes, and the fit. However, any feedback that will help me narrow available options will be appreciated.
