When I bought my first bicycle after college the LBS suggested I consider getting clipless shoes/pedals. Once I got re-acquainted with cycling, I decided the clipless route was the way to go. Since the bike was a hybrid, they had me buy MTB shoes/pedals. I sold the hybrid and bought a cyclo-cross as an "all-purpose" bike and kept the shoes and pedals. I'm now toying with the idea of buying a road bike.
If I decide to buy a road bike I'm not sure if I should buy new shoes/pedals to go along with them. I'm very comfortable with the ones I have and maybe that's the most important criteria. But I'd appreciate feedback from the more experienced cyclists out there. I'm not so stuck on the MTB shoes/pedals that I wouldn't consider getting road shoes/pedals instead. It's just that I'd want to have a good reason - for me - to do so. I'm wide open to your comments, suggestions, and recommendations.
BTW - my current shoes are basic entry-level Shimano MTB shoes; pedals are crankbrothers Candy 1 (also entry-level).
