I bought an entry level CX bike as a more versatile option to ride around town, hit crushed limestone trails in parks/forest preserves near me, that sort of thing. I don't have any immediate plans of getting into racing or anything.
I really miss being clipped in though. I have an old pair of road shoes and look pedals/cleats - for my use is there any major reason not to use these that I'm missing? I know eggbeaters / spd seem to be preferred, but I'm not really racing, or encountering mud. I've searched a fair bit, and it seems the main concerns are being able to clip in on more than 1 side, and ability to clip in all clogged with mud, etc (which I don't really encounter too much of).
Thanks for reading.
