hey yall. i have a few questions.

Hello Guys, although i have been reading this forum a few months i have just joined the group. i have found a lot of useful info on the site. for that i thank all of the involved. Now i have a few questions and thought this would be the place to get answers. Here is my questions:

do road and mtb shoes fit the same? i am using size 44 specialized road shoe. does this mean i need to be looking at size 44 mtb shoes?

im wanting to get clipless petals for the mtb, most of the guys i ride with are using the pd m520. how do yall feel about this petal?

Thanks inadvanse for the help.
Brandon

Pedal. The word is pedal.

Anyway, I have M520s on my bikes, they're good, they do the job, easy to unclip in "OH SHI-" moments. No complaints here.

If you're using the same brand, you're likely to want the same size, and something around that in other brands.

I've found almost any Shimano SPD and even most knockoffs to be great.

I wish I could find it, but there's a list of phrases that go from friendly to offensive with the difference of 1 or 2 letters.

Technically, though, you didn't misspell a word. You just used the wrong one.

Petals


Pedals
