After 40-odd years of casual cycling with nothing but flat pedals, I am intending to try some multi-day touring next year and have been wondering about cleats. I've now decided to take the plunge and get some single sided Shimanos. This thread helped the decision process enormously .
That's another thing on the Christmas list then.
wow you've got to love the internet I posted a question and in a day or so have learned as much about cleats as is possible without actually trying them. Thanks everyone who's contributed. I think I'm going to stick with what I'm used to (toe clips) for the time being, mainly because I already have them and I often need to work all day in the shoes that I have ridden to work in. But for the touring I'm planning for the summer.... well maybe
