Put speedplay frogs on my road bike. Can anyone recommend a light yet stiff shoe to use with them?

...can be had both on U.S. and European sites at big discounts. Good shoe. You can check shoe compatability at Speedplay's Website.

I just bought a set of Frogs for my road bike. I had Speedplay X-2s and liked the product, except for the problems of trying to keep the cleat free of mud and debris. I finally got so fed up, I decided to go with the Frogs and use a MTB shoe so that I could walk around off the bike comfortably. I went with the Shimano M081. It's got a pretty stiff carbon sole; the Frog cleat fits w/o the need for any surgery to the shoe; very comfortable; and silver (matches my Litespeed). I orginally wanted the Sidi Dominator2, but the sole had a little more flex and you have to take a Dremel to make room for the cleat.

Hope this helps.

I think it's a great combo. Been using it for years. But go with what fits your foot.

I run frogs on both my road and mountain bikes. I use Sedi Genuis 3 as a road shoe and Sidi Dominators for shoe. The Genius work great if you do the following. You need the Sidi SPD adapter for the Genuis. You also need a dremel tool. Using a grinding adapter widen the distance between the two ridges on the plate. You will understand if you see a plate in person. You widen the distance to allow the frog cleat to fit between the ridges where the SPD goes. Then install the cleat on the plate and install the plate.

The Frog pedal is great in that I can use the Genius's for serious road riding and then use the Dominator for road rides where walking is needed.

Enjoy ....
