    Looking to buy first cycling shoes and clips - Please recommend (on tight budget)

    I have almost 10,000 miles wearing sneakers, and want to get some inexpensive cycling shoes and clips. I don't know how to match shoes and clips and want a decent release from shoes. Help is appreciated.

    A little more info would be useful for you to get suggestions, what type of riding do you do is key, are you looking for a road bike shoe/pedals, which will be stiff, but not have any grip on the sole, or MTB type, which allows easy walking. Your bike, Trek 1.2 is a road bike, but many road riders use the MTB setup for pedals.

    Jim, stop by Intown Bicycles and Mike and the crew (Amy, Rita, etc.) will be more than happy to help you and answer all your questions.
    Tell them that Ron sent you. Mike will get a big smile from that. I worked there before I retired and moved to FL.

    Start with MTB type shoes with dual sided entry pedals. This is where I started when I moved into clipless pedals and shoes. easier to get used to. I now ride Look pedals with the Gripper cleats so I can walk almost normal off the bike.
    Current Rides, Look 566 & d' Arienzo-Basso Daily Rides. Cannondale 800 Optimo, utility bike.
