I have been considering this for a while... but nearing the point of plucking up the courage to actually do it... I've tried on some shoes and I am currently considering either: Specialized Sonoma Shoes or Specialized Taho Mountain Shoes. Now the guy in the shop (not my normal cycle shop as they don't have any shoes in stock) has said that if I want the option to cycle in my normal shoes (I'm a girly and like to ring the changes or just to nip to school to pick up the kids) then there is only one pedal: Shimano PD-M324 Which he didn't have in stock but is going to order. Is that correct? Is it going to be harder clipping in these ones as the clip is only going to be on one side ... which will presumably hang down and have to be flipped up. Being on a non-technical mind... how much will the shop do with regards setting up the pedal/shoe and how much will I have to do myself?
