Anybody have suggestions for a good and reasonably (yeah right) priced tri bike shoe. Let me know what you've tried and what you've liked.
Thanks,

Sidi has some road shoes with just two velcro straps, thats what i use, they arent "tri specific" so you save a bunch of cash

cheers,

I use MTB shoes with a single velcro strap. I pulled the laces out and threaded elastic through the lace-holes.

I like the sole of MTB shoes; makes running through transition easier.
mine are mtb too!sctri

Unless you are going for the win, go with what is comfortable and you are used to. I use Diadoras with a buckle and a velcro. I am sure I could shell out another 150 and get tri specific shoes and shave of a precious 5 seconds. But you know....
