Actually , I have a set of those handy LOOK cleat covers made by Exustar, which saves the on the cleat wear.
+1 I use cheap LOOK pedals. And you can get the cleats off FleaBay for a song. Why bother using spd pedals on a road bike?
Having been caught with a flat that couldn't be fixed, and having to walk about 4km in socks, I want to get shoes that I can walk in.
Can any other shoes offer what SPD types can with MTB type tread ?
Note, I am not mega serious racer (just yet) enough to warrant spending heaps on shoes that I need to take off & on in the shed and walk into the house (floorboards) with bare feet.
Shimano do some good raod type shoes with MTB tread that suit my budget, so they have to do for now. If I get into racing, then I'll go from there
