|I have speedplay x3's and love the feel when riding. But I can't stand walking on them anymore. I've got the little coffee caps but still almost slid down a full flight of marble stairs the other day.
How do the Frogs compare in terms of feel? I've also been considering the new shimano road pedal...

|cycling shoes as you may have found out are not made for walking.they will all feel slippery.|
|Frogs are used with MTB shoes....||davet|

|....most of which are far better for walking than road shoes.
I use both X2 and Frog pedals with the appropriate shoes. I install the pedals/wear the shoes depending on what kind of ride is coming up. A social ride where there are stops for coffee, food etc, that involves walking more than a little bit, the Frogs come on. If it's just a pure ride, the the x2's are used

|So I take it you prefer the feel of the x2's for riding. The frogs are more for convenience. IYO, are they pretty close in terms of feel or riding satisfaction?|

|In terms of what the Frogs and X2s feel like; other than the shoes, to me there is no difference in the feel of the pedals while using them. Clip in & out are slightly different, but not much.|

|I find the Frog / MTB shoe combination a little more comfortable than X2 / Diadoras, and easier to walk in, but the combination weighs at least a pound more. On long rides it really slows me down.|
|you can put the new frogs on SPD road shoes||sodade|

|I don't like using MTN shoes on the road bike because they are a bit clunkier than road shoes. I am about to buy some frogs and put them on my Sidi Genius 3s. The frog cleat looks fairly tough - does anyone have any real world experience with this combo?|

|....but you WILL NOT be able to walk without damaging the cleat and/or falling on your butt. SIDI sells a 'thing' that's almost like a lug that surrounds the cleat on the left and right, that allows you to walk using the Frog cleats on the road shoes.|
|cool - can you help me with a link?||sodade|
