I think i'm comfortable enough on my hybrid to start trying out the crazy clipless pedals. I'm doing an MS in a few months, and from what i'm reading clipless is a rather cheap way to improve efficiency. Which would you buy for your first set?
^^This is a shoe + egg beater combo. In my price range (just barely).
^^Shimano pedal. Clipless on one side, platform on the other.
I'm leaning towards the shimano so I can just hop on my bike and go when i'm strapped for time. Plus it'd give me more options on shoes. Could I pedal with normal shoes with the egg beaters in a pinch? With MTB shoes, is the cleat recessed enough that I could just wear them around after I commute on my bike? Also, how does sizing work on that combo deal?
Thanks so much!
