Recommendations for clipless pedals and shoes?Maggiefan

Hi all. I would like recommendations for clipless pedals and shoes. I've been out of road biking for years and just yesterday, I decided to buy a Douglas Racing Fusion bike without pedals from Colorado Cyclist. I've never used clipless pedals and don't know what to look for in a clipless pedal/shoe combo. I'd like to keep the cost under $200. if it is possible. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

at www.totalcycling on a Sidi shoe and Look pedals. Sidi's tend to fit the narrow to normal foot better unless you get their "Mega" line. I think that they have some good deals on a Genius 3 with LOOK 296 pedals or a newer 396 pedal. Great prices on good stuff.

Usually shipped to you from N.Ireland in less than 10 days at a super cost savings vs. US. Even with the weak $ you're still doing real good!

try sidi iron shoes from www.parker-international.co.uk and speedplay x-3 pedals. the speedplays are super-easy to get in and out of (double sided, light, small, cool looking).

I just bought a pair of look pp396's on ebay from "euromike", $95 + $4 shipping, and they came with an extra pair of cleats. All brand new. I paid on monday morning and received the pedals today (wednesday).

I don't know if he has any more for auction right now, but he seems to rotate stuff, so he might soon.

Thanks all for your responses. I think I'll be getting a pair of the Look pp 396's and still deciding on shoes. Thanks again!

Tonight on e-bay, I scored a pair of the Look Team Kelme pp 396's for $75. plus $10. for s/h. Now all I have to do is figure out which shoes to go with. Any suggestions?

They aren't the fanciest shoes, but Specialized do have a larger toe box and are much more comfortable than many of the popular brands on my feet. If you want a larger toe box, but don't want to spend a lot---they're worth trying. Your local Specialized shop should have them.

If you aren't sure about fit--you may want to buy your shoes locally, or at least from a place that will accept returns if they dont fit.
