I will be going on a a tour from Boston to Montreal this summer and i am getting a touring bike together. What i am confused about is what pedal to use. I want to use toe clips and straps since i don't want to have to wear special shoes. So far i have been looking at the MKS Touring and the MKS GR-9. I was going to put double toe clips with double straps on them. As for the shoes i will be wearing, i have a pair of avocet cycling shoes with a stiff bottom which should be good.
Do any of you have suggestions or recommendations for pedals other than those i mentioned above? My feet aren't very big or very wide (i am a size 9) so i don't need some huge heavy duty pedals.
