    Where To Buy Good Clipless

    been thinking of getting them for a while and with all the talk about them finally has encouraged me to get them. i have near 100 bucks to spend on a good pedal and shoe/cleat set. i can afford a little more than 100 and i can spend less. anyone know where to buy a good set? any suggestions on a good set. what not to buy? and also it would be better than tony the tiger "greeeeeaaaaaat" if they were red thanks

    Look around your local bike shop, or online stores.

    www.nashbar.com
    www.performancebike.com

    Raising your budget to $150 would help alot. My current set of shoes and pedals was $146, and it's not that advanced.

    Look for eggbeaters as well, they're generally cheaper but harder to learn on, so I hear.

    Pricepoint have several Shoe/Pedal packages that fit your budget. Check them out. I only have experience with Crank Brothers (Candy SL) and am very happy with them but they're about $90 USD from Pricepoint and it doesn't leave you much for shoes. You can get the Candy C version for $72 but I'd stick with the Stainless steel (SL).

    I originally bought my Candy SL's on Ebay as I found it to be a better deal. This listing has it for $88 USD BuyItNow with shipping included.

    I think you can probably find shoes for a decent price as I often see them going for pretty cheap. PricePoint has them starting at $34 USD and Ebay can go even cheaper.

    Good luck with your search.

    I bought a set of Performance Forte Carve pedals for $40. 295 grams. Excellent pedals and look very nice. As for shoes, see if any of your local shops have some on closeout. Perf does have red shoes:

    pedals:

    shoes:
    http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...tegory_ID=2120

    Wait a week or 2 until the pedals go back on sale. Also, don't forget to use a 10% coupon from this web site. Should pay for your shipping so you'll be under $100 shipped.

    Don't get those FPD pedals unless you get a decent testimonial about them. I've never heard of them before. There are junk pedals in the low end. I previously bought a pair of $20 Nashbar pedals that aren't truly SPD compatible. I'd think you want a pedal that is Shimano SPD compatible. That way, you can ride your buddie's bikes & they can ride yours. It's likely that they will have SPDs.

    Well I scored the Mallet C's from performance for 53$ then got some nice 35$ shoes (diadora) from nashbar. so about 90$ for a really nice set of clipless.

    I think the important thing is the pedals, you can get those online. If possible I would buy shoes in person, I just got lucky and the shoes I got are perfect for the mallets and fit my feet quite well also.
