Poll: road shoes or mtb shoes?(13 posts)

Poll: road shoes or mtb shoes?NatC
Aug 1, 2003 4:00 PM
I've read a bunch of the old threads in the archives and am now familiar with the pros/cons of each setup, but now I want to get an idea of what percentage of you are actually using what.

I'm considering either the Speedplay X/3 with a road shoe or the Frog with the Shimano M221 carbon-soled shoe.

Please sound off...

With Crank Bros. Eggbeaters on both the mtn and road bikes. Spent the money for one good pair of cycling shoes rather than two different middle-of-the-road pairs.

I use Sidi Dominator 3's with Time ATAC pedals on my mtn bike and was using the same setup on my Road rig.
Now I switched to Shimano Ultegra Pedals with Preal Izumi Vortex shoes because I wanted a bigger platform for road riding.
I like that , but my knees are so use the rotation of the Time's that I am thinking about going back to them on the Road bike.
But I have only had the road shoes and pedals for a week and haven't gotten them tweaked in good yet.

works great for road & mtb. Only complain is the insole, LBS showed me some nice custom fit insoles for the shoe but I was already overbudget.
sidi bullit mesh with Bebops = great !!!noupi

...for the road. Offroad riding/racing chews up shoes so I usually get whatever's on sale. I tried using Time ATAC's on my road bike but didn't like the side-to-side play (which is great on technical offroad trails)
