I'd like to move beyond the el cheapo plastic pedals my tricross came with, but not sure I really want to spend $250 on a set of SPD pedals and shoes. Has anyone tried the Power Grips (particularly the "Sport Pedal Kit") or something similar? I rarely ride more than 2-3 hours at a stretch, am not a huge performance junkie, but have heard that being clipped in gives you a more efficient ride. Plus, I hate slipping off the pedals during rough gear changes.
Do these types of straps crush your toes at all?
Thanks for any info,
