I am looking to get a pair of SPD compatible shoes for a long tour.  I have looked at the Shimano M038 and M036 and read some reviews.  They look the same and have been given similar reviews.  what is the difference?  Does anyone have any other suggestions for a good touring shoe?

Gear Talk / Touring or cyclo-cross or road?

I am looking to buy a bike for a cross country tour.  I am going to pull a bob.  I am trying to decide what type of bike to buy.  I have talked to seemingly knowlegable people who say that road bikes will work just fine if I am going to pull a trailer (and that you get more bike for your money buying a road bike as opposed to a touring specific bike).  Anyone forsee any problems with this?  I have been leaning toward a cyclo-cross or touring bike.  Have looked at the Bianchi volpe and the trek 520.  Any feedback or suggestions would be nice.  Aslo low position straight bars vs. drop bars?  Aluminum vs. steel?
