    Cleat compatability

    will Egg beater cleats work with SPD shoes?
    Im finally going clipless and havent yet decided if Im going Shimano or Egg Beaters. I found some el cheapo SPD shoes that I was going to pick up, but before I do, I dont want to make my pedal decision quite yet (need to find some deals on a pedal)

    Cheapo SPD shoes will work with eggbeaters, but it might not be the best thing for them. Eggbeater pedals need a very stiff soled shoe because they have such a small platform. In most, but not all, cases cheapo shoes are not that stiff.

    That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    Oh, and if you find a good deal on eggbeaters tell me, I'm looking for a second pair for my road bike.

    I used Eggbeater cleats on my Specialized m020 Mtn shoes (el cheapo). They worked pretty good. I would get a bit of soreness on the bottom of my foot after 80 - 90 miles due to the sole not being stiff enough but they worked pretty good. I just had to replace them because the seams were coming unsewn, I had about 5000 miles on them. They worked awsome for commuting' as they gave good grip when putting a foot down at the lights.
    Sunrise saturday,
    I was biking the backroads,
    lost in the moment.
