After cycling for 8+ years, I have finally bitten the bullet and purchased some SPD pedals because of all the 'you'll never regret it' type anecdotes I have heard and read and seen. The ones I have bought are dual purpose so they're also flat on one side so I don't always have to clip in (when doing the shopping for example). I have bought a cheapish pair of trainers with a recessed sole so I can fit the cleats and see how I get on with them to begin with. Ideally, I'd like to use them when I go on my North Coast 500 tour of Scotland, in a couple of weeks time, but we'll see how I get on with them first. My reason for posting is to ask the following advice; - do you think someone like Evans Cycles would help me do a fitting? - how best (once the cleats are fitted) do I adjust for my own personal style/pedal action, alone? - how easy is it to clip out? (I'm terrified but would try on a quite road to begin with). - are they really worth the effort? - any other advice, greatly appreciated. Thanks.
