I am a longtime mountain biker and recently purchased a road bike with ultegra components but without pedals. Any recommendations on pedals? They don't have to be fancy, and I dont want to use my mountain bike shoes. What's considered a good price on pedals/shoes?

I'll sell you mine for a buck apeice. Theyre really old and crappy and are missing some screws but still, amazingly, work perfectly. Theyre richey spd road pedals. Super light and you can wear mountain bike shoes with them so you can walk around in the coffee shop looking slightly less retarded(even though you'll still have on neon spandex and shaved legs with a sinnewy ass). Sorry about that last comment, I hope I didnt offend anyone on the board who's retarded. Sorry Doug Sloan and aliensporebomb. oOOOOoo,,to the ribs,, to the ribs,,now the head, body blow, body blow..

Do a search on the reviews side of this board. Anything other than MTB shoes and you won't be able to walk as easily.

I think it is mostly personal, but I use Look 396 because of the adjustable float. I am also new to the road bike, so once I know what float range works for me, then the next pedal will be a bit better dialed in.

Also, consider your shoes and pedals as a unit because they must mount correctly.

Here are some rbr threads I bookmarked. I'm looking around too, and my favorite so far are the Coombe Pro's for their simplicity.

I just switched from an older SPD style to Look 396 Jalaberts. I'd say its worth the wierd walking to have the extra ease of clipping in and the more secure feeling platform. Get the rubber cleat covers(Kool Kovers $15 LBS) for no slip walking

got mine from www.totalcycling.com
$69 + $22 shipping, got 'em in two days. (Ireland to Bellingham WA)
