Never used clipless before. first set of "real man's pedals" i like the egg beaters...but for the low price of $free.00, i couldn't pass them up. i'll use these for road riding, not a big MTB rider. Just getting into road cycling as well, have yet to purchase my first road bike. these will go on my Schwinn mtb to ride on an indoor trainer until spring then hopefully i can afford a true road bike. These have a larger platform which makes me a little more comfortable right now. we'll see how it goes. i should be picking up a pair of SPD cleat compatible Cannondale shoes tomorrow as well as the correct foot pack for my roof rack so i can finally get it mounted! i am excited

crank brothers float a lot more which was weird at first. (I rode shimano spds for years.) They release a lot easier than shimano's or wellgos, I can lose a front tire in a corner and plant a foot without realizing I released it. Never had them come out just riding tho. My girlfriend loves them for the easy release too. None of this matters all the much for you on the road tho, as you aren't dodging trees and logs and rocks.

hopefully at some point i'll be able to get a true mtb as well...my Schwinn came from Target for $140 and I've put over 700 miles on it in a year and a half. granted i did get a new rear cassette, warrantied crank replacement and had to buy new tires, went with a pair of Serfas "Drifter" tires for a smoother, faster road ride since i was only riding on paved paths/Hines Drive.

Kinda disappointed in that. I thought it would be one car burning out, then like 40 burning out and doing donuts. Meh.

Since we were on bike earlier, figured I'd post a pic of my beauty...

Love it! I'll probably have to go geared after this year, if I want to jump to pro elite.
