Well, I was recently looking into a Trek 1600 (YES. I KNOW IT'S LIKE VANILLA). Seeing as this would be my first road bike, I know almost nothing about pedals and cleats. I was thinking about getting PD-6610 Ultegra pedals. However, there are a few things that I need to know.
1) Are they compatable with the bike?
2) Do they come with cleats? If not, what cleats would fit into it?
3) Would I have to wear biking-specific shoes to use the cleats?
4)If so, what shoes?
Also, I'm fuzzy on what cleats do and how they work. I assume, they're something that your shoes clip into, which then keep your feet on the pedals. But how do you clip out? Do the cleats fit into the pedals, then you stick your shoe in?
Sorry for being a n00bx10.
