I'm looking at getting a pair of clipless pedals (first pair). I would think SPD would be best to start out with, I plan to buy pedals online, than shoes at a lbs and I wuld imagine that SPD compatible shoes are most common? I need your guys' recommendations on what pedals. I want to be able to ride like no more than a mile w/o my bike shoes, just with plain shoes. I dont do real hardcore mtbing, i will mainly use them on street and XC trails. I've been looking on eBay at pedals i've been interested in, and most have been about $50-60 new. Here's ones i've looking at:
Words of wisdom?
