Eggbeater 3 with platforms or Candy 3 by themselves?
I'm looking to buy my 1st pair of clipless pedals and while most of the time I'd be riding the bike I would do so with cycling shoes/cleats, I'll still have times I just want to ride around for fun/leisure and not REALLY ride the bike hard and wear the clunky shoes. I think I will be going with Crank Brothers Eggbeater 3's or Candy 3's...but I have a question...
Would I best served getting the Eggbeaters and using one of those clear clip-on platforms for when I want to ride without cycling shoes/cleats...or would there be adequate surface area on the Candy 3's to ride without cycling shoes/cleats? I'm not looking to do anything hard/strenuous without the shoes/cleats on...just stuff like riding on flatland around the lake with friends, trips to the store, etc. wearing tennis shoes or sandals but never barefoot.
Any suggestions or feedback would be great. Thanks!
