I have found a good deal on a pair of SIDI road cycling shoes that accept SPD cleats. The reason I like them a lot is because they are light and at a very good price. I only have money to buy 1 good pair of racing shoes right now and was thinking of buying these.
I am an avid roadie as I am a mountain biker. I train 6 days a week 3 days road and 3 days mountain. I like XC riding a little more than I like road but I want a shoe that can fit both bills.
I have SPD pedals on both my road bike and mountain bike so all I need is a decent pair of shoes that are SPD compatible. I race XC all the time. Would there be any setbacks to using a road designed shoe for mountain biking? Is it true that road shoes offer a stiffer sole? That would be a plus for me because I want the most efficiency in power transfer possible
