Ok so as you might know, just got my '07 hardrock sport. Did a 19 mile yesterday and had a blast, but realized I would enjoy it alot more with clipless pedals.
It's just way to hard hopping onto/over things without your feet secured to the bike. The only thing that Im worried about is getting out in time when I go down. So if someone could maybe give me some words of wisdom on crashes (or just tell me to suck it up) that would be cool.
Now the real reason for this thread was to get reccomendations. My LBS's dont carry many shoes in stock, and definately not many my size (12-13), so I'm going to get some off the internet. I was hoping to get somethnig that I will be able to wear while walking too, since I like to ride all day then camp that night.
I dont really care what the look like, plain black suits me just fine (and matches my bike ).
Under $80 (hopefully)
Last but not least...made in my size
I will also need pedals too, as I still have the stock. Was hoping to keep those under $60. Dont really have any requirements for them since I'm sure you guys have alot more experience with pedals than me.
Thanks for the help.
