Hey, bit of a recommendation required.
Tis a long way off, but myself and some (non-cyclist) friends are planning a trip to the Canadian Rockies in June. Basically we'll be hiking/climbing, but I'd hope to hire a bike for a day or two and explore some of the trails.
The problem is, we're going to be tight for weight as far as flights go, so I can't really afford to carry an extra pair of shoes. What I'm wondering is whether there are any spd compatible trainers that really are comfortable for everyday all day use - ie they'd be what I'd wear all the time I wasn't hiking or climbing. Obviously I'd not bolt the cleat in except when biking.
Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions of a really really comfortable flexible (I know that's not the ideal for spds) trainer that'll take spd cleats?
Or I suppose just feasibly whether spd shoes can be bought for a bargain price while there and then left behind?
