After biking for years on a cementish Jeep mtb, I've finally bought myself a road bike (Kona Kapu 2009 ). Now's the problem with which pedals to choose. I'll be using the bike mainly as a commuter to school and our local gym (both are at a distance of ~5 km). When biking to school, carrying around a second set of shoes seems impractical, however, why I'm a bit hesitant to go clipless. On the other hand, I do realize that using platforms will significantly lower my cool factor (!)
The ideal solution would be some kind of platform adapter for road pedals that I could simply put on when biking to school, kinda like these, but for SPD-SL. If anyone knows about anything of the like, I would be very happy to hear about it! Or, better yet, could it be possible to just use normal sneakers directly on the SPD-SL pedals, seeing as they are quite large, after all?
I know about the dual-sided pedals, and I know I could just use mtb pedals instead. But, mind you, loss of cool points is not something I fancy
