Hello everyone. This is my first post. I'm new to cycling, but am enjoying it very much.
I bought a Trek 7500 hybrid in early May and have put maybe 400 mi. on it. Anyway, I am changing out the platform pedals that came with the bike for some clipless to increase my efficiency and stop simply "mashing". I found some new Bebop SL's at a super price through some exhaustive searching and am having them shipped to me. I chose Bebops after a lot of research and reading many positive reviews (some right here).
My question is this. I am leaning towards mtb shoes for the walkability aspects, but am concerned about having to trim away some material from the soles to make room for the cleat and provide clearance for the spindle (especially with good shoes costing what they cost). Does anyone having Bebop experience or experience with other low stack height pedals, have any recommendations on shoes? Maybe some mtb shoes that would need no trimming at all? Or, would road shoes be better?
I currently road ride around 10 mi. on weekdays and maybe 15-25 on weekends.
Thank you in advance for your input.
