theyre fine to walk in, theyre meant primarily for MTB shoes, though they make a road cleat which has worked out fairly well for me so far. so it depends mostly on the shoe you pick, good shoes should wear slowly and you won't be walking on the cleat, cheap shoes will probably wear faster and you'll eventually be walking on the cleat. also paying attention to how you walk can effect life-span, if youre lazy you may slide your feet and the shoe will wear faster.

eggbeaters, with the exception of quattros, are mtb pedals and have only mtb cleats. i'm happy to share my summer-o-bike-shop-workin' experience... people tell us stuff, and we know stuff, like SPD's suck, speedplay warantees suck, eggbeaters are much loved but suck for distances, frogs are awesome but are suckily delicate, the ultimate is speedplay zeros but don't even try to walk in 'em, etc.

in other news...
i'm in milwaukee till sunday. sucky.

In other mass questions on the interweb:
Does anyone have an extra cross brake lever they don't need/whould like to give me/sell to me?

ok Bossy McBossface. a road cleat will not turn an MTB pedal into a road pedal, fyi.

i don't know if i'll have time to bike. my mom's in the hospital, i have to take care of family stuff, and i have to work, and i only am on BF because i'm on a conference call right now. so take that.

boys.

Hey, baldylocks, did you come out to Hains on Sunday on the kogswell? if so, good to see you on bf!

I like my Look style pedals, which is why i'm still hanging onto the road system even tho they are slippery as heck to walk in. I have candys and mtb shoes ready to go, but I'm worried about the engagement being further back on the foot (yeah, I installed the cleat all the way forward)... this adding all the more to my toeverlap, which is already huge.

Chimbly, hang in there. I hope your mom is ok.

Yup that's just after me and me Annie left. We got there around 7:15/7:20 after going to dinner. I wanted to see if anyone wanted to come pick up the polo stuff at my place, and Dyna & Poop were the only ones there. We talked for a couple, and since nobody else showed they were planning on leaving.

As far as I know, it could be this Saturday or next Saturday. If that doesn't work for you then, just name a date and I'll see if I can make it work.
