Thank you very much Fred for taking the time to thoroughly answer my questions! I very much appreciate it. Very informative and I feel much better about making a decision now!
Fred, awesome info! It looks to me like the best option. I just don't know what a hot shoe is?Hot Shoe is where you would mount an external flash.
It would be cool if somehow there was a way of all who were on the road were to keep in touch and help each other out or to meet up...etc.Some people are doing this already by using Twitter and hash tags for the Adventure Cycling routes. You can see recent tweets using the routes from individual route pages on the aca site. Since it is winter many of the routes do not have active conversations, but a few like the Transam have some current conversation, http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/transamerica.cfm?pg=feeds&feed=acatransam
I just think it would be neat to know who else was on the road at the same time doing the same thing...
I'm riding mainly on the flat side of the SPD (what does that stand for?) pedals, especially in traffic and definitely on anything resembling a steep hill.I believe SPD stands for, "Shimano Pedaling Dynamics". After some more use I think that your pedals will start to release a little bit easier after some initial wear on the cleat itself. I at least find that new cleats are often a little more difficult to get out of when first installed. Pedals are clearly one of those items that people have personal feelings towards. There are lots of brands and models to choose from, but over the years I have been very happy with the Shimano SPD pedals that I have used.
Just picked up a pair of the Pearl Izumi clipless sneakers and really like them so far. When touring, I don't want to look like I'm part of the spandex mafia or that I'm out for a "workout" and I really liked the blend of casual styling with moderate stiffness in the sole.
