Road to MTB
Hey all. I'm a roadie that just purchased a MTB yesterday. Picked up the CDale F600. I was very surprised at how well this bike rode. The only MTB I had ridden was an old Huffy POS that weighed as much as my car, was uncomfortable and shifted like a car without transmission fluid in it.
The bike came with the Shimano type clipless pedals. I have Time pedals on my road bike that I like alot. I found it a little difficult to clip into the new pedals. Does it get easier when they are broken in, or is it just a difference I've got to get used to. I was considering trading these out for a set of Time ATAC XC pedals. Does anyone have any comments/suggestions on pedals?
Also, it seems like it might take a little more getting used to clipless on an MTB. On the road, once your rolling you aren't doing a bunch of maneuvering around on loose soil, so it seems like I need to be ready for some spills from not unclipping quickly enough.
