I purchased a fixie almost 6 months ago now and have been riding it a lot. It came with toe clip pedals with straps which have been great for convenience and even better for my wallet with not having to purchase proper shoes.
Unfortunately I've just made the connection between my new shoes having the sole destroyed more quickly than I would have liked. My pedals having been slicing through it when I've been out riding (cheap shoes fortunately)
So I did some research on the pedals and have seen that they are made for cleats http://www.yellowjersey.org/tocleat.html After reading a lot on here though I see that people ride with straps because they can use any shoe.
So, I'm confused. Do I need different pedals that can be used with any shoes, or am I missing something? I've attached some pictures of the pedals.
