- What clipless pedals and shoes for clipless noob?
I’ve always found Time cleats are buggers to get out of when new even though they’re super pedals thereafter. Get Shimano SPDs that can be slackened off with an Allen key and some warm SPD shoes. Expect 3 unclipped tumbles each of your first 3 rides and then you’re sorted.Posted 1 month ago

Having used higher end Crank Bros & Time for many years, I’ve recently switched to Shimano SPD’s and it’s hard to see past a set of Shimano PD M520 (pedals & cleats) which can be had for the price of a pair of Crank Bros / Time cleats only. I believe Shimano PD M540 offer a little for robustness, and after that it’s all marginal gains in weight loss. Go spend £20 on the 520, it’s a great price for a great set of pedals & cleats!Posted 1 month agojoebristolSubscriber
520’s go on for ever and the cleats are quite durable. Unless you want a platform round spds I’d go with those to try.
Shoe wise I’ve found Shimano are the best fit for means make some sensibly priced ones. I recently picked up some am7’s which are probably the best spd shoes I’ve ever hadZ
I’ve found Northwave are pretty but not as nice a fit. Hi had some Nike shoes back in the day that were nice but I don’t know if they still make cycling shoes.Posted 1 month ago
