Pedals

I have a question about what is the best type of clipless pedal to buy. Should I get spd? I use time impact on my road bikes, which I assume is not for mountain biking? I would appreciate some recommendations.

I have always been into road cycling, until I just got my mountain bike a few weeks ago. Thanks

If you are used to Times on the road bike, I would reccomend trying Time Atacs.

Time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is

Now you always say
That you want to be free
But you'll come running back (said you would baby)
You'll come running back (I said so many times before)
You'll come running back to me

Oh, time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is

You're searching for good times
But just wait and see
You'll come running back (I won't have to worry no more)
You'll come running back (spend the rest of my life with you,
baby)
You'll come running back to me

Go ahead, go ahead and light up the town
And baby, do everything your heart desires
Remember, I'll always be around
And I know, I know
Like I told you so many times before
You're gonna come back, baby
'Cause I know
You're gonna come back knocking
Yeah, knocking right on my door
Yes, yes!

Well, time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is

'Cause I got the real love
The kind that you need
You'll come running back (said you would, baby)
You'll come running back (I don't always said you would)
You'll come running back (I won't have to worry no more)
Yes time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
Oh, time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
I said, time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
Oh, time, time, time is on my side
Yeah, time, time, time is on my side

Hey at least it's more fun than just saying "Times" Have you clicked on the crappy MIDI link?

Look into Crank Brothers pedals...

I ride with Egg Beaters, but would reccomend checking out the Candy pedals as well.
