Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Cheap Shoes

I think it is time for me to get some bike shoes. I am on a budget so I need to get the cheapest shoes available. I have seen many shoes and I just don't know which shoes are good. I am looking only at clip less shoes because I can't afford pedals. Please give me any suggestions you might have! Thanks!

If I am reading this right, shimano makes relatively inexpensive, decent clipless pedal shoes. I hope you are clear on the concept that clipless shoes require cleats and clipless pedals, as the nomenclature is bizarre from the outside looking in.

Yes. You can't ride a bicycle without pedals.

Free shoes would be the lowest price you could get. Gotta clarify on what pedals you use and such.

What size do you wear? If you respond, I will tell you why I asked.

Used bike shoes can be had for cheap on Craigslist.

Shoes aren't going to do you any good without clipless pedals

Just get whatever then. Harder the sole, the better power transfer, but honestly I don't think it would matter much. Just wear/get whatever you like.
