    Jumping on the bandwagon - finally going clipless

    Iplaced the order last night. I decided to go with the Nashbar ATB clipless pedals and Lake Cycling Sandals. the prices were right and I had the check-card in my hand. I also ordered a new pair of fingerless gloves and the Nashbar wet weather socks.
    Anyone want to scold me for getting cheap pedals or do you think they should do the trick? From what I read they hold up pretty well, and the sandals are SPD compatible and just look... cool.

    Not a scolding, but Probikekit.com sells Shimano M520s for $33 with free shipping. Minus shipping, that makes them cheaper than the Nashbar ones (though they should be fine). Welcome to clipless. I think you will find it hard to go back.

    I really want a pair of cycling sandals. I am a little envious.

    The Lake ones were around fifty bucks, plus I had a 15% off coupon.
    My entire order, shipping and all, was less then a yard ($100).
    I ordered sandals because, well, because I wanted sandals. Plus I figured I had best not order shoes online since I am flat footed and shoes vary so damned much. I knew sandals would fit, they always do.
    I wish I had known about that probikekit deal, to be honest, I don't recall ever hearing of the site... so thanks for the link!

    Congrats and good luck with the clipless!

    I still haven't had the pleasure of using clipless sandals yet, so perhaps that will be something for my next purchase.
