    I went with the mountain bike pedals simply because I can walk in the shoes, and I don't really care about the slightest extra bit of efficiency they may provide.

    I'm planning on going up today after I leave school. The place I go to does a pedal fitting (although I may have to schedule it) would this help at all with what you are talking about?

    Also, the pedals my friend has fixed up are actually old mountain biking pedals. Are those still workable for road biking?

    Biking in NY in the winter

    Any suggestions on how to. I live in a rather hilly area and have school at 730 (so no time in morning) until 330 (so little time in evening).
