I've done many very hilly rides of 100-140 miles and haven't had any more problems with SPD shoes/pedals than I had with my LOOKs. I know lots of people who use for them for even longer rides without any problems.Jmetz said:Good stuff. I'm just scared to spend money on a set of shoes and pedals only to find I can't do distances of upto and beyong 100miles
In that case, keep your eyes open for LIDL and ALDI special offers. My sister bought me a pair of SPD shoes for under £20 from ALDI and they are okay. Not brilliant, but I did all those 100 mile-plus rides in them, no problems.Jmetz said:That's fine. I just wanted my mind putting at ease regarding pain at distance. Any recommendations on shoes to go with the said SPDs or even other pedals. I'm not looking too spend crazy money tho
