SPD pedals for road

Hi, I have SPD pedals and cleats on my MTB and to save money from not buying £80 road shoes and look cleats I wondered if i could buy SPD pedals to use my MTB shoes on my road bike? Any foreseeable problems with this? Many thanks. Ian

Cycling app

I am just getting back into cycling, having recently bought an MTB. I would like a decent cycling app (with HRM) to use on my mobile. Can anyone kindly recommend a good one please? Thanks in advance :D

Fantastic! But where do I find one in the UK?

Re: Daytime running lights

If it works for you then why not? Its your opinion that counts. Worth mentioning the Highway Code suggests that if you ride a motorbike you should keep your lights on diurnally for visibility, and subsequent safe riding. Good luck with your decision

Top tube frame bag

I'm thinking of buying a top tube frame bag (to fit in the triangle) and wondered what people thought of them? Are they a good idea? Are they largely superfluous, do they fit much in, or are they a gimmick? As always your opinions are welcomed. Incidentally, its for an mtb . Thanks

I love the freedom it is giving me, enjoying the tarmac but also off road, plus introducing my young sons to a love of two wheeled exercise. I travel light and have bought a CO2 p...
