I bought a 2009 Stumpy Comp 29 fsr last month. It came with the Shimano PD-M520 SPD pedals, but I'm not sure what to do.
I've never used clipless, so the thought seems scary. There are quite a few situations in the foothills where I find myself throwing a foot down STAT to save the upright position that I find so endearing. I'm not, however, completely opposed to giving them a try - it seems like everybody that has tried, loves.
I think Crank Brothers make some effing-sweet stuff, and have been tossing back and forth the "Mallet", "Candy", and the "5050xx" (Platform).
Thoughts on the mentioned? Something else I should consider?
Fwiw, I've taken a liking the the Pearl Izumi X-Alp shoes. . . any thoughts on these?
I'm making myself crazy with all of the options, and simply need to pull out the CC and make the purchase. HALP!
