I recently purchased my first touring bike (Cannondale T800). My other bike is an older mtn bike I've had nearly 20 years and uses clips, so just about any shoe would work. What are your educated opinions on clips vs clipless? If I go clipless, what should I look for in a touring shoe? I've been looking at clipless mtn bike shoes. They have good tread and look like a guy should be able to wear them around off the bike when needed.
As long as we're on the subject of pedals, this bike comes with Wellgo dual function cages. I've been told most people upgrade since these pedals tend to wear quickly under heavy use. Any advice on what I should look for in a touring pedal, either clip or clipless?
