I'm living in a very rural area south of Phoenix and because of where I live never have anyone to ride with. Thats fine I guess but it increases my anxiety about breaking down out in the desert and having a long walk back to whereever.
For years I've ridden my road bike with SPeedplay pedals and cant complain much. Out here however the sand and grit causes me to have major maintainance time, and if I ever had to, walking in Sidi Genius Road shoes with Speedplay cleats is a short distance exercise only!
I bought some eggbeater pedals for my mountain bike and have zero complaints, THese pedals are great for the purpose and I am serioulsy considering replacing the Speedplays with one of the Eggbeater models. I'd like to be able to ride both bikes with the same Sidi Dominator MTB shoes.
The Eggbeater Candy model looks good - because it seems to provide a bit more support under the foot than the minimalist plain Eggbeater models - as does the road specific "Quattro". My question re: the Quattro is will it work with MTB shoes or only smooth soled treadless Road shoes?
Anyone have any relevent experience they are willing to share using Eggbeater pedals (any models) on a road bike?
